Meet 16-year-old Hayden

Hayden is a very high-spirited young guy, who is often referred to as the funniest child ever, as he loves to joke around with his peers and make those around him smile. He is also a really good listener, and that is what makes him a great friend to his peers.
Like many children his age, Hayden loves playing video games especially on his Nintendo Switch. One of his favorite things to do is to go swimming as he really enjoys time in the pool.
He also loves to use his creative side, building and constructing ideas he has, of things he designs. When it comes to eating, Hayden loves to be adventurous, trying all kinds of foods, and looks forward to expanding taste pallet.
Hayden enjoys attending school, as he likes to learn about the world around him.
Hayden hopes to have a forever family that will encourage his interests and provide him the memories of sharing in new family activities. When asked, he says he would like a two parent family, where a mom and dad can help love & guide him as he grows.
