This week we wrap up our incredible interview with Dustin Underwood, who served multiple jail terms before finding his path -- only to lose his way again.

If episode one left you looking for a happy ending, then settle in for an heart-warming conclusion to his story.

Wrapping up episode 1, Dustin was getting ready to leave Team Challenge with nothing but a garbage bag of clothes and a girlfriend 8 months pregnant.

Now he had two goals: Find a place to live and find a job.

In Part 2 life begins to open up opportunities and a brighter future, but not before more curveballs.

Curveballs that includes a simple mix up in paperwork that almost landed him in jail and a bad drug test that almost eliminated his job.

Meanwhile, Dustin was still searching for purpose.

A purpose that was finally discovered through a fundraiser after the loss of a friend that raised thousands of dollars for his family.

That moment opened his eyes and his heart.

He wanted nothing more but to give back. A journey he's still on today through a fishing group that helps kids and families in need.

Part 1 told the story of struggle. Part 2 is the conclusion that you hope would happen.
