This is Jaddin.

He is a 15-year-old boy.

Say hello to Jaddin! Jaddin enjoys spending time with his friends and playing basketball and video games. He is working on using his coping skills to make decisions. He is protective of those he cares about. He struggles with school work, but is eager to try to do better. He makes friends easily and is very devoted to them.

A two-parent home that is structured and understanding of his needs is ideal for Jaddin. He needs parents who are firm and caring. He would do best in a home where he is the youngest or only child.

Note: Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) has ceased offering the non-relative Adoption Only program. CYFD does continue to offer the Foster Care program. The Foster Care Program differs in that that the goal of the program is to ultimately reunite the child with their biological parent while the child is in your care for approximately a year. Should you become a Foster Parent it is also a possibility that the children that you foster may become available for adoption.
