Ashee loves penguins. She hopes to work with animals as a career. But imagine, this fifteen-year-old had never been to a zoo. KSTP arranged for her to check out the Minnesota Zoo where she got up close at the new penguin exhibit.

When Ashlee was a child she lived on a dairy farm and was up before dawn to milk them each day before school. Now she hopes to find a new family. One that will love her and fill a hole in her heart.
