In the summer of 2012, Steve Jenkins was contacted by an old friend about adopting a micro piglet. Though he knew his partner Derek wouldn't be enthusiastic, he agreed to take the adorable little pig anyway, thinking he could care for her himself. Little did he know, that decision would change his and Derek's lives forever. It turned out there was nothing "micro" about Esther, and Steve and Derek had actually signed on to raise a full-sized commercial pig. Within three years, Tiny Esther grew to a whopping 600 pounds. After some real growing pains and a lot of pig-sized messes, it became clear that Esther needed much more space, so Steve and Derek made another life-changing decision: they bought a farm and opened the Happily Ever Esther Farm Sanctuary, where they could care for Esther and other animals in need.

I loved this story and the fantastic pics of Esther in all of her glory. The author has a conversational writing style that I enjoyed.

Sweet true story of Derek and Steve and how one day they found themselves becoming surrogate parents for a tiny little pig -- a "mini-pig" or so they were told. But then Esther grew...and grew and their tiny little two bedroom home, already filled with several dogs and cats became even more crowded. I had heard bits and pieces about this family -- who live in Canada and apparently had thousands of people following their story on Facebook...but really enjoyed reading about their trials and tribulations and all the amazing things that can happen when a 650 pound pig lives inside the house. Funny, touching story and how it changed these two men.

This is a fantastic read. it is humorous, compassionate, and very engaging. Can you imagine getting what you think is a mini pig, who grows to be a maxi pig. The book is a celebration of taking on a challenge with love and commitment. Do yourself a favor - read this book!
