Jakob is living his life day-by-day. Without any contact from his biological family, Jakob yearns to be a part of a family. He is currently living with a friend. Jakob tries to be in good spirits about his situation. He is fearful that one day, his friend's parents may ask him to move. The only place he feels is a home away from home is at his school. He shows up everyday just so he can get a hot meal and a place to interact with others that puts a smile on his face. He likes to read and listen to music.
