Wednesday’s Child: 16-year-old Jaidan – CBS Boston

2 min read

BOSTON (MARE) – Jaidan, who goes by Jaida, is a sweet teenage girl. In Jaida’s own words, “I go by she/they pronouns. I’m a cosplayer and I really enjoy it. I’m skilled at it as well, I use makeup contacts and beautifully made costumes. I would love to go to a convention someday. I wish for support on it. I love to learn Japanese and I’ve been learning for three years. My dream is to go to Japan someday. I also enjoy playing video games. I would enjoy having someone with similar interests.”                                          

Jaida attends a technical school. She can present as quiet and reserved but will open up when comfortable. Jaida has a real love for animals.                                                                                                                                            

Legally freed for adoption, Jaida would thrive in a loving family that is able to provide her with a nurturing and patient environment. Jaida would like a home where she is the only or youngest child. She would love a placement that has pets and would allow her to have her guinea pig. A future family should be open to visits post-adoption with her biological father and grandparents. Jaida’s social worker is open to exploring single or two-parent families with or without other children in the home.
