Boy Sells Lemonade for Adoption, Meets Goal

A 9-year-old Missouri boy was on a mission to raise funds for his adoption.

Donnie Davis wants to adopt Tristan Jacobson, so she and her family started an online fundraiser called “Tristan’s Adoption Fund” to make it happen.

And they exceeded their goal!

“There’s not enough words to say ‘thank you’ to everyone who has shown support or given us donations,” Davis told the News-Leader. “Everyone has made this possible. We will make sure this child will forever be ours.”

Davis said any extra money will go toward Tristan’s education.

“She will be my parent,” Tristan said, motioning to Davis. “I’m happy because I have a new mom who loves me.”
