Orphan Who Begged Church for Family Thrown Out of Adoptive Home

By  |  408 Comments

This teen’s story will bring tears to your eyes.  There are thousands of black kids who want good parents, so we hope that it will allow you to consider adoption as a possibility for the future. 

Last year Davion Only made national headlines when he begged parishioners at Florida’s St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church to help him find a forever home. Now, however, the troubled teen has been removed from his prospective adoptive home for fιghting with one of their children.

Davion was 15 years old when he made his heartfelt plea at the church: “My name is Davion and I’ve been in foster care since I was born… I know God hasn’t given up on me. So I’m not giving up either.”

The teen had been placed with an Ohio pastor and his family, but after a fιght between Davion and one of the pastor’s children, Davion was flown back to Florida.

Davion had seemed happy with his new home, writing excitedly, “I got baptized!” on his Facebook page, and was even signed up for football, but apparently things took a turn for the worst. Davion was involved in a physical altercation with the child as well as the father and the family wanted him out of the home.

Davion had been searching for his mom who gave birth to him while she was incarcerated, but she passed away. After he learned of his mother’s passing, he decided to take matters into his own hands and make a plea for a family at church.

    was it just 1 fight?… seems a little harsh… what happened to cause the fight? who started?.. And were his foster parents white?

    TT_CA, you are on point with your questions. My inquiries are exactly the same as yours to an extent. While the race of the foster parents may play a factor in the decision to remove the teen from their home, what were the other mitigating factors that led to such a decision?

    Often times, the natural born children of the foster parents may have some sort of resistance to the newly adopted child thus creating undo/unjust tensions to purposely rid of the adopted child. One note, there was no prior disclosure as to whether the teen had any history of discilinary problems or unruly behavior.

    I pray that everything works out for this young fellow. Who knows, maybe the Lord has something better for him. As for the foster parents, could it be that they sought attention or notoriety for adopting the teen and when the limelight faded away, they were tired of him and he was subsequently dismissed? These are inquiries only, but God knows the truth.

    He is 15 or nearly 16 years old now. Soon he will be 18 and can make choices for himself. Being in foster care all these years and knowing that his mother has passed away… the only thing he should be focusing on is he education. He will have an opportunity to go to a State University or he should began looking into getting into a Historically Black University College and make something positive of himself. There he will find all the family, friends, and positive leadership that he needs to become a powerful black man in the future. I pray God continue to lead and guide him in his path to adulthood.

      Your post is full of cr@p. You fail to understand what this child is going through. He wants a family NOW. He needs guidance and structure. He needs a father and positive role models to guide him into that direction.

      You and that POS preacher are unable to provide that for him.

      G’d provided that child with fools gold and he is suffering for it.

    Alot of foster kids are like these veteran who return after tours of service with no real home or family of their own… Problem is he been vulnerable to whatever environment since infancy.., It was gods grace that he was guided through those church doors in order experience community around him… But at his (apprentice) age right now “especially” a teenage foster kid., He needs to start a *skill set* an trade or skill that’ll make him marketable, self sufficient to walk on his own…We all know more of our young people have been *priced out of* the higher education structures and that knowledge and skills once you’ve possess them they can’t be taken away… Although here I’m making the case that for most foster kids family life falls off at the ages of sixteen ~seventeen and then they get swallowed up by what ever social influences or ills in the environment without the right structures or developments… These are the 1st teen pregnancies or drug & alcohol addicted because they started their young lives off with a giant *void *…. And life lessons and social impulses can take the hard-knocks route for most of them…

    Sucks to be Davion but hes up in these ppls house fightin their kid AND fightin the kids pops who is a pastor; after they were nice enuf to take his azz in aww hell naw; they did the right thing cant have his big oompa loompa azz causin drama like that. I dont blame the pastor and the rest of the family for shippin his azz back to Florida. Pastor gotta protect himself and his family they come first but like I said sucks to be Davion. Now the word about his violence against the family outta the bag and no other family is gonna want him. Where is HIS family he got aunties and a grandma and cousins why the fukk dont they take him they was talkin sheit about how nice it was to find him yeah but not nice enuff to take him in right? Nuccas and flies; flies like sheit and nuccas aint sheit.

    He is a black troublemaker and manipulator. I cannot blame them for kicking his behind out. He needs to be in a reform school or a mental institution. He appears to be retarded. Who stands up in church and asks to be adopted? Answer: A retarded as___ole. He doesn’t even look like a kid. He looks like a 40 yr. old retarded, nappy headed drunk. This so called “kid” is a fraud. No one wants to adopt you. Just DIE already!!!!!!!!!!

    …and you too. (along with your crackhead mammy.

    Blacks are the poorest, sorriest forms of life EVER!!!! All of you are the epitome of LOW LIFE.
