Waipuna's name translates to spring water that shines bright like the moon. Her light is a reflection of the moonlight. Hina is the woman in the moon and is the mother of Maui. She controls the waves and tides. We wanted to tie her name into Waipuna's and ask Hina to be like a mother to her. Now Hina will always be looking over her while she grows. 

Wai came from a truly sad situation out in the mountains of Mākaha. People caught a bunch of little goats like Wai and stole them from their mothers to sell on Craigslist. She was only about a week old at the time, and the people quickly realized she needed 24 hr care being so young and without a mother to feed her. She was rescued and fostered for months by our garden leader, Brian, who had become Wai's dad! She slept with him every night in a diaper.


Once Wai was old enough, she moved in with Elsa and Anna. She never really bonded with either and has been mostly a bit of a lone wolf, though she enjoys playing (usually a little too rough) with Steve the goat.
