(Newser) – Remember Davion Only? He's the 15-year-old who has spent his entire life in foster care and whose plea to be adopted went viral in October. More than 10,000 people responded, and now the Florida teen is living with a prospective adoption family, reports ABC News. And while it's not a sure thing that he will be adopted, this does mean that Davion gets to spend his first proper Christmas with a family, reports the Daily Mail. Davion made his adoption plea in church after learning via an online search that his mother had died.

"I just want him to be happy and loved and to be with someone who is going to do the best for his future," says his biological aunt.
