According to the officer, who already has a family & children of his own, the baby is thriving.

“Our member was so happy to add his brother’s baby to his own family which already has children,” Chief Nestel told YC. “This compassion, generosity and willingness to help others in their time of need is such a great example of the character of our members. I truly do work with exceptional people who care more about others than they do about themselves.”
