Transcript for Former foster child enjoying life with his new family
Finally tonight here, America strong. We all remember the boy who bravely stood up in church, his prayer answered. Here's ABC's Steve osunsami. Reporter: When we first met him, he was just 15 and about to age out of foster care, never knowing the love and security of having a family of his own. That's when Davion only took matters into own his hands, and walked up to the front of this Florida church, where he begged for someone there to adopt him. I just said, I know god hasn't given up, and I'm not either. Reporter: "I'll take anyone," he told them, old or young, dad or mom, black, white, purple, I don't care." Well, tonight, he is celebrating two years with his forever family. The social worker who drove him to the church that Sunday, and is seen here adjusting his tie was listening with her heart. I think it's a human's right to be loved and wanted. Reporter: Connie going is now his mother. He has a sister in college, another at home, and a brother too, who came from his same group home. I feel safe, and I feel like, you know, I just have people who care about me. Reporter: This has been a long road for both mother and son. But now there's the end of high school, graduations to celebrate, summer vacations, a beautiful grandmother, and a new last name. We're a family so our journey is really just beginning. We all love each other and I wouldn't give my family up for anyone. Reporter: Steve osunsami, ABC news, Atlanta. Thank you for watching here on a Thursday night. I'm David Muir, I hope to see you right back here tomorrow.
