14 Year Old, Male, White


Ayden - Heart Gallery of North TexasAyden is a very sweet and respectful child who wants to do typical activities for his age. He enjoys crafts, drawing, and building things with Legos among other things. Ayden gets very excited about the simple things, such as his caseworker picking him up to go eat at Raising Canes for their monthly visit. At times, he needs reassurance that he is making good choices and is wanted by his family. Ayden can be easily redirected to get back on task, if he happens to get distracted. He loves playing with cars, riding his bike, and jumping on the trampoline. Ayden continues to make progress and build upon his social and educational skills. 

His desired family will be able to provide a continued structured and supportive environment for Ayden. He will best fit with a family who has a strong male role model to provide guidance and role modeling. He needs strong parents who are committed to helping him educationally, emotionally, and physically reach his full potential. Ayden will do great in an active family who like to participate in outdoor activities, visit theme parks, and participate in other social events. Having a family with older siblings or where he can be an only child will be benefit Ayden. He will do well with parents who are patient, encourage him to try new things, and help him realize he is an important part of the family.
