RICHMOND, Va. -- We want to help 12-year old Aiden find a loving home.

Aiden is smart, outgoing, curious, and sweet.

"I want people to know me as a kind and caring person that can be trusted," he said.

He enjoys playing video games, watching football, and being outside.

His smile can light up a room.

He loves animals and would love to have pets one day.

He is really good at math and really loves playing board games.

Having a family of his own would mean a lot to him.

"Having someone there for you when you're down or having someone who can care for you and help you with your homework and stuff," he said.

And if you want to know what it's like for an adoptive parent, just ask a parent who's done it.

"There's nothing more rewarding than watching our daughter, start to feel better about herself, and what she's capable of," parent Margaret Steele said about raising her adopted daughter.

In Virginia, we have hundreds of children who are ready for foster to adoption. In other words, these children are ready to find their permanent and loving forever families. As Connecting Hearts – A Deborah J Johnston Charity, celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids or sibling who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other almost 700 children who may not be seen. Our kids are all ages and races, they were put in foster care due to no fault of their own. To learn more and becoming a foster to adoption parent(s)click here.
