Koko is the most loving surrogate mom to her baby dolls (human and other great ape) and kittens, and is very patient with those around her - for example, when they don"t know as much sign language as she does, and she has to repeat herself in many different ways.  Will she be a mom soon?  That will probably be Koko"s birthday wish this July 4th!
