Donnie Davis was Tristan Jacobson’s guardian. She wanted to adopt the 9-year-old was by his birth mother. She could not afford the $10,000 in legal fees so Tristan took matters into his own hands. He began selling lemonade on the street. His little stand began to attract hundreds of generous customers and raised $6,500. An online fundraiser raised another $9000. Donnie Davis is “kind of in shock,” she says, but she is now the adopted mother of a son.
You and I have been adopted by the Creator of the Universe. And in Jesus Christ He paid all the fees. When we said yes to his calling, the transaction was done and we became sons and daughters of God. --Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell.
