Congrads hope, on a job well done,:) Did you find the joeys or are you registered with a wildlife group? I work for a call centre & sometimes I get calls from people that find young animals & they want to know where & who to take sick or injured animals too.

hug - A bear giving a hug
I am so proud of you. Being an animal carer takes a lot of commitment. It would have been both sad but also a happy moment to set them free. You have done very well. A hug for you is attached.

Ya, of course it will be pretty sad since you rear them when they are very small, it's like your very own kids. But of course, freeing them to the nature, where they belong is where they will enjoy more. It's a very nice move you have made. I'm sure you are happy for them as how they are happy to be free to their land.

That truly brings a tear to the eye hope, when you hear a nice ending like that, I have to say I admire what you do and you must feel some sense of goodness out of it also! Keep up the great work but also enjoy it!

I think it was ver noble of you to raise the roos in the first place, I canimagine you got quite attached to them while you were caring for them. It must have been hard for you to release them, so heres a hug.... HUG I think you and people like yourself deserve medals (or perhaps something a bit better and a little more usefull). Keep up the work, its people like that make me proud to be human.

It must be sad for you letting these go if you have been rearing them since they were babies ........... but they are better off in the wild as nature intended them to be. There will be plenty more orphaned animals once the drought breaks because all the skippies will come up near the roads and highways where the green feed seems to come first after a good soaking rain. anyone who looks after these orphans deserved a pat on the back and not too many people can do it so that they are returned to the wild.
