SEATTLE — Davion Only, a 15-year-old boy who was orphaned as an infant, stood in front of a St. Petersburg, Fla., congregation last month and made a humble plea for a family to adopt him.

“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,” the teenage boy said.

Only has bounced around numerous foster homes; he was born in prison and has never lived with either of his biological parents.

    It makes you want to cry to think this young man who seems to be very together has to almost beg for a family, bless him I hope he finds a family, if I wasn't living paycheck to paycheck I would take him in for sure
