Davion Navar Henry Only

October 22, 2013 by  

Davion Navar Henry Only, Davion Navar Henry Only has been waiting for a family all of his life and he recently decided to take matters into his own hands. He has only one desire for his prospective family: “to love me forever.”

Davion, 15, has been in foster care his whole life, but has never had a family. On a recent Sunday, he stood in front of St. Mark Missionary Baptist Church in St. Petersburg, Fla., and made a public plea for a family.

“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.”

The plea has garnered national attention that Davion hopes will help him finally find a family.

“If you can, reach out and get me and love me until I die,” Davion told ABC News.

“I’m praying and still hoping,” he said. “I know God hasn’t given up and I’m not either.”

Back in June, equipped with a copy of his birth certificate, Davion went to a library and searched his birth mother’s name online. He had been born while she was in jail. He found out that she had a criminal background that included drugs and theft. He also found her obituary. She had died just a few weeks earlier.

“When I found out she died, I was kind of angry,” he said. He remembered thinking to himself, “This is ridiculous. How did I not know?”

He cried in the library, but decided his family’s history wouldn’t define him.
