Transcript for Davion Navar Henry Makes a Public Plea to Be Adopted
to tell you about a history looking for a place to call home. He has spent his entire life in foster care. So he took his love and yearning for a family to the place built on faith and hope. Abc's steve osunsami with the child who is america strong. Reporter: Davion says he's never giving up on his dream. One sunday this 15-year-old got dressed up, took the mic at this florida church where he stunned everyone with a simple request. Adopt me. I just said I know god hasn't given up and I'm not either. Reporter: I'll take anyone he said, old or young, dad or mom, black, white, purple, I don't care. The pastor said the whole church burst into tears. It just ripped at me. A number of them saying, pastor if I just had room I would take him tomorrow. Reporter: He's been in and out of homes a dozen times and never had a room or a pillow of his own. He was so concerned about revealing the combination to the lock that protects his belongings he hid it from our cameras. People don't know how hard it is and how much we try to do good. Reporter: His local newspaper followed him into church that morning and then published his amazing story, how his mother was in jail when he was born, how he never knew his family and how he discovered in june while surfing the internet that his mother had died. All of a sudden his story spread far and wide. On twitter, someone please adopt this kid and our family will take davion. I don't think I've ever seen a man with such hopefulness. Please know that you are not alone. Reporter: At 15 he knows he's older than what many families are looking for. He knows he's not a perfect kid. He has a temper he has to control, anger from those years where he waited for a mother who never came. His case manager says he's already an inspiration for other children waiting to find families. I think it's a human's right to be loved and wanted and when you don't feel that you are, it's hard to succeed in life. What's the most important thing that you want me to tell america? Just to love me forever. I just want people to love me for who I am and just to love me no matter what. Reporter: So far more than 500 people have called asking could he be my son. Davion says he's ready and learning to love himself. Definitely america strong. Steve osunsami, abc news, st. Petersburg, florida.
