A foster child is adopted seven years after an apartment fire that left him with terrible burns.

When a fire engulfed the apartment where Deyvion was sleeping, he was still a little infant in a cot. Firefighters saved him from the fire, but he sustained terrible burns to every inch of his face.

Deyvion’s survival was a miracle, but the resilient infant from Missouri had to fight back to health at a specialized burns unit.

This miraculous boy accomplished all of this alone; it wasn’t until he was five that Beth Plunkett, a single mother of two, took him in as a foster child.

According to Beth, who spoke to WGN9 News, “I thought he was a gorgeous baby, and I fell in love with him very soon.”

Everyone always says, “Oh, he’s so happy to have you and what you’re doing,” she continued, “but I’m, I’m just as equally lucky to have him.”

Beth finally adopted Deyvion after being orphaned for 2,545 days.

Most importantly, I want him to be happy,” Beth added. And I want him to constantly feel loved, have goals that he achieves, and do nothing short of incredible things. And I am confident that he will… God undoubtedly has a fantastic plan for him.

In addition to his new mother and siblings, who adore him as much as he deserves, the firefighters who saved him also think highly of him.

The South Metro Fire Department in Raymore’s Deputy Chief Eric Smith and his team will never forget the night they saved this remarkable youngster.

Deyvion was adopted by Smith and his team, who also gave him a customized jacket and helmet and a ride in their truck to the courthouse, where his adoption was officially finalized.

High-fiving Deyvion, Smith expressed his pride in him and added, “He’s very wonderful. Although we don’t always know why something occurs, we do today.
