Boy Who Spent All His Life In Foster Care Begged To Adopt Him At His Church.
15-year-old Davion of Florida was bounced around from one care facility after another. He never found a home, and he never found real happiness. His mom was a crack-addict and died some years ago, and Davion’s life, up until now, has been very dark.
But this year, he will spend Christmas with a loving family, a family that wants to adopt him. And this will be his very first truly happy Christmas. Davion’s story went viral back in October when he stood up in front of the 300-member congregation at a Baptist church in St. Petersburg, Florida, and begged for a family to adopt him.
He told the congregation: ‘I’ll take anyone. Old or young, dad or mom, black, white, purple. I don’t care. And I would be really appreciative. The best I could be… I know God hasn’t given up on me. So I’m not giving up either.’
And Last month the teen took his story to Florida Governor Rick Scott, speaking on behalf of all the State’s teenagers looking for a ‘forever family’.
He said, ‘Even though I’m going through an adoption process right now at the moment, I still hope that other kids in foster care get the benefit that I’m going to have to be adopted and to have somewhere to call home and to have a bed to call theirs.’
