This is Aidyn.
He is an 11-year-old boy.
Aidyn is an endearing and likable child who is good in math, likes school, and loves the attention of adults. He is intelligent, creative, independent, loves board games, drawing, and almost anything electronic.
Aidyn has a difficult time managing social skills and emotional states due to the early childhood trauma he experienced. He has received therapy for 3 years, has made progress and it is very important that appropriate mental health intervention be continued. He can be hyperactive, impulsive and aggressive towards himself and others.
Aidyn will do best in a home with 2 dedicated parents who are patient and committed to learn about Aidyn’s past challenges. He needs permanent caregivers who have experience with children who lack the skills of tolerating frustration, flexibility and problem solving. The adopting family will need to be prepared to make the long-term commitment and patience he will need to reach his potential and heal from past trauma.
