Dakota's Story

Dakota's story is one that is usually very upsetting to people. Most people will feel sad, angry, or mad. Heartbroken, empty, and lost is the way it leaves me. I am Jessica Lain, Dakota's mom, or "mama" as he would say. I will have these feelings for the rest of my life as will the rest of Dakota's family, because of someone who lost control and abused a child. Read more of Dakota's story...
