Thank you so much for your interest in helping Davion. His courage and faith have inspired the world. The response has been tremendous to the Tampa Bay Times story.

We are humbled at the continued outpouring of support for Davion and his quest for a forever family!  We know that there is great interest in who will become Davion’s forever family, but we request patience and understanding as we protect the delicate process of identifying the most appropriate family for Davion.  This is a step by step progression that takes time and our first priority is ensuring that Davion builds a strong relationship and has a successful adoption with his forever family.  During this time, we want Davion to be able to focus on building this relationship and we will provide additional updates after Davion and his adoptive family are in a place to do so.

In addition to Davion, please know that there are hundreds of children just like him that are in need of a forever family in Eckerd’s system of care. If you are interested in adopting a child, please call 866-233-0790 for additional information or click on the information links on this webpage.

Eckerd believes there are no unwanted children –
just unfound families. To touch a child’s life is
to change their future.

You don’t have to be perfect to parent a child in foster care. Children don’t need perfection; they need the commitment and love a forever family can provide. Eckerd believes there are families out there for every child living in foster care. Families who understand their strengths and limitations, and aren’t afraid to advocate on behalf of themselves.  Who can be consistent yet flexible; strong yet nurturing.  Who have the patience, commitment, and unconditional regard to give our children and teens, so they can adjust, grow and thrive in a safe, stable permanent home.
