There is a young man on my facebook that is so selfless and has really stepped up with out thought to raise a child whos parents abandoned him. Dakotas sister is a Heroin addict and left her child. Overnight Dakota had to step up and become a parent or turn over his nephew to child services. He instantly without thinking stepped up and works long hours. He fought for 2 years with the state of Florida to obtain custody and he finally got that this year in July. Dakota is always so positive and loving and the happiness that is displayed through that child is unbelievable. Dakota is a inspiration to all of his friends and family and should be recognized for his outstanding commitment to that innocent child.
