“U” is for Feeling Unloved
I usually don’t’ watch the news because it is so depressing and negative. I rely on my phone notifications or snippets I get as I browse Facebook or other news outlets I’m connected to. But today, I watched a heartfelt story on CBS news.
This story captivated my heart. This young man wanted a family. He had been in foster care for a while. I cannot image feeling like no one wants me or that no one loves me. This young man wanted a family. He was not afraid to ask for someone to adopt him either. His name is Davion Only. His caseworker had placed him once, but it didn’t work out and it changed this young man. All he wanted was a family and someone to love him. After all was said and done, his caseworker adopted him.
I worked as a caseworker for 17 years. There are people who touch you and you can’t shake their situation. You want to do more and you have to manage those feelings. But in this case, I felt so proud that the women who he could count on the most and had been their with him through his search for love and a family adopted him. She gave him the most important thing he wanted and needed. Love. Family. Identity. I salute her.
I am sharing the video because it made me feel that their is hope in the world and their are people who care despite the chaotic world around us all. There are unsung heroes that live among us everyday.
