ABC News reports:

[Davion Navar Henry] Only, 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.”!/yesnicksearcy/status/391014023778418688!/DLoesch/status/391012168860049408

Yahoo reports that only 52,000 of 400,000 children in foster care in 2012 were adopted.
