Things Looked Great Then It Went Wrong... Orphan Davion back in Florida; altercation ends dream ...
Since September, when Davion took the pulpit, 339 children in Pinellas and Pasco counties have been adopted.
But the boy who became the face for older adoption, whose "Davion Effect" was touted in Tallahassee and on TV talk shows, is still alone.
After a failed attempt (remember this ain't Hollywood) Davion is now at home with his new family- his former case worker who adopted him.
By ENJOLI FRANCIS and JENNIFER METZ: Navar Henry Only is finally set to get the happy ending more than 100,000 children in U.S. foster care dream of.
Connie Going, his former caseworker, is in the process of finalizing his adoption and is expected to sign the papers Wednesday, according to a family spokesperson. Going has two biological daughters and an adopted son.
"Connie, Davion and their new family appreciate the outpouring of support and well wishes," the Going family said through the spokesperson. "Right now, they are taking some quiet as a family but look forward to sharing their story, knowing it will inspire and give hope to others. In the meantime, they encourage everyone to follow their hearts no matter how difficult it may seem and to 'be the change you wish to see in the world.'" Read Full Story ABC News
