An Orphan Goes to Church and Asks Someone, Anyone to Adopt Him
Wearing his only suit and with Bible in hand, Davion Only, 15, gets some last-minute help with his tie before walking into St. Mark Missionary Baptist church with Connie Going, his Eckerd case worker. “I’ll take anyone,” Davion said. “Old or young, dad or mom, black, white, purple. I don’t care. And I would be really appreciative. The best I could be.”

This kid is from Naples, and it just destroys me to see that kind of longing for ANYONE in the world to want them. Just to be wanted. It’s mind blowing.

Just a note: My family, which lives in West Palm Beach, has contacted his case worker to see about adoption. We’ve taken in a child in the past that was without much of a family and it worked out well for us and the child. Just so Reddit knows, there apparently have been hundreds and hundreds of calls already, so it looks like things are looking up for him! (Also, we’re hoping to hear back that he’ll be coming home with us!)

If you want more information about Davion — or any of the 120 foster children in Pinellas and Pasco counties who are waiting for families, call Eckerd at (866) 233-0790. If you can’t adopt but want to donate time or money, call Eckerd at (727) 456-0600.
