Kind-hearted & laidback, with a bright future aheadJayden (9194)
Jayden is a quiet young man who loves sports! It’s hard for him to pick a favorite…he thinks they’re all great…but recently, baseball has been on the top of his faves list. He’s played on lots of sports teams in the past, and hopes to get back out on a field with his teammates soon! He can take some time to warm up to people, but once he does, Jayden’s fiercely loyal to those he cares about. He’s a laid-back kind of guy who is respectful, helps out around the house, does well in school, and is genuinely kind-hearted. Jayden has big plans for the future, including going to college (although he admits, he’s not 100% sure what he wants to be when he grows up!). So like many future college students, he may try a few different majors to see what feels right for him — but whatever direction he chooses, there’s no doubt he will make an impact on the world around him.
Jayden would do best in a two-parent home with brothers and sisters. Family is important to him, and Jayden wants to know he truly belongs and is a vital part of his family. He will thrive when he feels that sense of belonging. Jayden wants and needs a strong male role model in his life as he grows into young adulthood. He’s expressed a desire to be adopted and live a “normal” life not defined by his circumstances. Parents who can show him love, offer support and guidance, and provide one-on-one attention will be able to help Jayden recognize how important he is to the family, and that he has a bright future ahead of him.
Families will need to be patient during the transition, and understand that it may take a while to get Jayden to open up. Parents who can demonstrate reliability and consistency are ideal. Interested families should be well-versed in trauma-informed care, and should understand the impact trauma can have on children.
