Meet Aiden

Aiden likes school, where his favorite subject is art. He doesn’t really like to play sports or watch them on TV.

He likes to play with cars and on his tablet. He plays by himself sometimes and likes to watch TV.

Aiden likes to go out to eat with his foster family – his favorite restaurant is McDonald’s. He’s a big fan of pizza, hamburgers, chicken nuggets and French fries. He would like to go to Disney World.

Aiden would like to have a small family with pets. He picks up after himself without prompting and straightens his bedroom. He likes to sweep the floor.

Case workers describe Aiden as a sweet, kind child who usually doesn’t get into much trouble.

About the kids

Most of the kids in agency care who are available and waiting for adoption in Hamilton County are older than 10. Younger kids usually are adopted by their extended family or their foster parents. The younger kids who are available for adoption are typically parts of sibling groups.

The children in agency care have experienced some level of abuse or neglect, or they come from families who are not able to care for them because of unfortunate circumstances. Being in foster care has allowed HCJFS to provide for their safety and well-being.

But in spite of all they’ve been through, the children in agency care are much like any others. They like to hang out with their friends, they have favorite toys and TV shows.

They also have hopes and dreams – especially for permanent, loving families that will provide them with the safety, stability and unconditional commitment that they deserve.

They need you now.
