Listen to Zaden rattle off the 12 qualities of a Boy Scout from memory at lightning speed and you can’t help but smile and be impressed. Hear him crack a joke with the perfect blend of dry humor or sarcasm and you’ll be laughing right along with him. Or watch him zoom through a math worksheet with flawless accuracy and focus, and you’ll quickly see why he’s a student at the top of his class.

“I’m in no hurry to grow up,” says Zaden. “I’m going to enjoy it while it lasts.”

You can find Zaden active and involved in many, many things he loves – climbing trees or playing in the yard, reading a new book, or achieving a new high score in his favorite video game. Like any kid his age, he’s always trying to find the right balance between books and video games! He is a friendly, chatty teenager, who is quick to share what’s on his mind and talks even faster when he’s excited.

Boy Scouts is a great outlet for his energy and smarts, where he gets to learn about computer programming or develop his wilderness acumen and campfire-starting skills. It has also given him new opportunities to connect with peers and adults. Zaden also enjoys staying active in sports, and recently completed a season on the basketball team.

At school, he’s been chosen to be in a classroom program geared to challenge the top students with advanced academic opportunities. He consistently rises to meet academic challenges and is a disciplined student. In school or at home, he has an ability to focus on small details and understand the ins and outs of a new subject or hobby (check out his video to see his intricate maze drawing skills and the depth of his Pokémon knowledge!).

Zaden is close with his two siblings, Gianna and Johnathon, and it will be important for his adoptive family to help him to maintain these very important relationships. Zaden would really love to be adopted along with his siblings! His social worker is currently searching for separate adoptive families, but their recruitment team remains hopeful there may be a family out there who could parent Zaden and his siblings together.
