11-Year-Old Adopted Boy Mows Lawns to Earn Money for Biological Dad’s Gravestone

11-year-old Brandon Bakke worked all summer to earn enough money to purchase a gravestone for the biological father he never met. His mom, who adopted Brandon, says her son was always curious about his father, so she reached out to anyone with the same last name on Facebook and found his sister who said that he died a year ago from an asthma attack, but didn’t have a gravestone marking his burial spot.


Dear Sister and Brother,

1. God IS in control

2. Life is not always fair, it rains on the just and the unjust…we should not compare our lives to others but focus on the plan God has for us.

3. Bad things will happen in this world, but God promised us a home in heaven if we believe in Jesus. One without sorrow, pain or death…where we never will grow old.
