This handsome nine year old boy is seeking a skilled and dedicated family who shares his love of riding dirt bikes. Jayden is of Hispanic decent but he prefers to speak English. He is a loving little boy who yearns to be loved back.
Like most boys his age, Jayden loves to play basketball and other outside activities with his friends. He has a great sense of humor and likes having fun and playing around. Because of experiences he has had in his lifetime, Jayden is not currently placed within a family setting--but he is ready and hopeful for the right family to come along! His clinical providers feel it is critical for him to have a two parent family including at least one strong and actively involved father figure, as having a strong and nurturing male role model in his life has been a positive influence in the past. Jayden would do best in a home with great structure and consistency. He struggles with chaos so a busy and active family would be very hard for him to settle into; and a family with no other children would be an ideal match so he can receive a great deal of support and attention from his new parents.
Being an insightful child Jayden engages well with others and he lets those who care for him know how much they mean to him. Sometimes his emotions get the best of him but he will do well with a family who can help him remain focused on his positive coping strategies and communicating his feelings and needs in a healthy manner rather than acting out. When he is given positive praise and encouragement, a family will be rewarded with his joyful expressions over a job well done!
After entering a therapeutic day school, improvement has been noted in his academic and behavior performance at school. The additional supports offered through his educational program has created a supportive environment for him. It will be important for Jayden’s family to be open and supportive of some contact with important people from his past, including a previous foster parent whom he fondly refers to as his “Titi” or aunt.
With the right family by his side, this amazing and resilient little boy has great potential to grow up into a fine young man.
