Once upon a time, in the lush rainforests of Borneo, there lived a female orangutan named Mina. She had been eagerly anticipating the birth of her first baby, but sadly, things did not go as planned. Mina's baby was born stillborn, leaving her heartbroken and grieving.

As Mina mourned the loss of her child, she noticed a group of humans passing by her territory. Among them was a woman carrying a newborn baby, wrapped in a blanket. In her grief-stricken state, Mina couldn't resist the urge to take the baby from the human woman and hold it close to her chest.

To her surprise, the baby began to cry, and instinctively, Mina brought it to her breast and began to nurse it. The humans were shocked to see an orangutan nursing a human baby, but they were also relieved to see that the baby was healthy and thriving under Mina's care.

As the days went by, Mina continued to care for the human baby, feeding it fruit, leaves, and roots. She protected the baby from other animals in the forest and kept it warm at night. The baby, now a toddler, had grown to love Mina as if she were its own mother.


One day, as Mina and the human baby were playing in the forest, they stumbled upon a group of humans who recognized the child as one that had been reported missing several months ago. They were overjoyed to find the baby safe and sound, but they were also surprised to see that the child had been raised by an orangutan.

Mina was hesitant to let the child go, but the humans promised to take good care of the baby and ensure that it had a happy and healthy life. Mina eventually relented and allowed the humans to take the child, but she remained in the forest, watching over the baby from afar.

Years later, when the child had grown into an adult, he returned to the forest to find Mina. He hugged her and thanked her for the love and care she had given him as a baby. Mina was thrilled to see the child again, and she knew that even though he had grown up among humans, he would always hold a special place in his heart for her, the orangutan who had been his mother.
