Jayden(Age 8)
Micky is a happy, easygoing, outgoing and handsome boy (he’s wearing the white shirt in the picture). He loves his little brother Jayden. He began collecting cool bracelets with cool sayings like “keep cool,” “be brave.” His favorite sport is basketball! He recently played on a basketball team for an afterschool program and was a small and power forward. He enjoys playing checkers (just like Jayden), playing outside and reading books. He also loves video games. He LOVES pizza! When he grows up he would love to play in the NBA. Two wishes he has is to have a successful life and to go to a good college. When he gets upset he plays video games or plays outside to keep calm.

Jayden is a handsome little boy who LOVES Thomas the Train and can never have too many Thomas toys! (Jayden is wearing red in the photo). When he grows up he wants to become a train driver. Whenever asked about his favorite color, he will always answer blue! And when given the choice to pick a meal you can bet Jayden will pick mac and cheese every time. He is in second grade for the 2019-2020 school year where he loves recess, lunch and math. Three things that bug him is not being able to read, play or see his family. He states that his skills are reading, math and being good at science. When he gets a little upset, he plays with his toys, plays checkers or watches television. He continues to learn to get better at checkers and likes to practice. Jayden lives with his older brother Micky and he would love to stay with Micky in a forever family.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Micky and Jayden, however once a permanent resource is identified the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.

The information is given by PAE based solely on the statement of the family that they are approved to adopt. Families in Pennsylvania without an approved Family Profile are directed to contact 1-800-585-SWAN1-800-585-SWAN to pursue an agency in their geographic area. Families living outside of Pennsylvania are encouraged to work with an agency in their state to prepare the profile.
