Donnie Davis and her husband Jimmy consider Tristan their own son. However, the adoption in their words is a “reassurance” that the child would know that he has a permanent loving family.
To collect the necessary amount of money, Donnie Davis started selling small items from her home. And Tristan arranged his small business to help her to raise the money.
Boy prepared lemonade and was selling it while Donnie was selling her household items. People were actively buying Tristan’s lemonade.
The sale of Donnie’s personal belongings and Tristan’s refreshing drink helped this family to raise $7,100. Good people also donated them $6,900 through the Fund “Tristan’s Adoption”.
Thanks to the funds collected, Tristan became a full member of the Davis’s family!
