Little “Jedi” carries the power of a smile

Jedidiah is a funny and playful teen. He likes to go by the nickname “Jedi” and he carries the power of his smile, which in turn makes those around him smile as well, as he has a happy and playful demeanor.

 Some of his favorite things are the “Minions,” dinosaurs, and seeing movies of his favorite characters.  Jedi has a contagiously bright and big smile.

 Jedi gets along very well with other children and adults. He also likes to stay active, and likes to play, as he has a lot of energy.

 Jedi can be very shy at first but slowly will warm up to someone when gains some familiarity and trust.  He will do best with a family that has experience working with children who need constant attention, as Jedi will require care, and supervision throughout his entire life.

 In a special message Jedidiah wants his future family to know that … “My name is Jedidiah, but all my friends call me Jedi. You should know that I can be very shy when I first meet new people, but once I decide I like you, we will become the best of friends!”
