A 9-year-old boy set up a lemonade stand, hoping to raise enough money for his adoption.

Tristan Jacobson was taken in by his foster mom Donnie Davis four years ago. His mom left him at the doorsteps of a shelter in Missouri. Tristan's mom was in trouble for prostitution and drugs.  Tristan said that Davis would make a great mom, and he wanted to make it official.

"He's already part of our family, in mine and my husbands hearts, that's our son," Davis said. "Nobody can tell us any different that is our son. He wants to be legally ours."

They hoped to raise $5,000, but crushed that goal and have raised about $14,000.
