Wednesday's Child: Daden

Daden, 12, is bouncing his way to a bright future.

"I want to play the violin," Daden said. "I just like how it looks and how it sounds."

It's not just music that interests him. He's also a builder at heart.

"I like to do construction," said Daden, "because you get some hands-on stuff."

As for down time, Daden loves to read.

"Because it gets your mind off things, and it gets me a little bit focused," he said. "[And makes me] want to read more because it's interesting."

Happiness is worth the climb, says Daden. And when he's upset...

"I can draw whatever I want, like what I'm feeling," Daden said. "If I'm angry, I just draw stuff. You can just keep it to yourself or throw it away, and it can be done with and over."

Daden has no problem entertaining himself, but he's looking for a forever family talk to.

"Because they listen to you, and they might know what you're feeling," he said. "Then they can probably help you or something."

Meanwhile, he'd like to help some brothers and sisters.

"If they're in school already, I'll teach them math and reading," said Daden. "And if they're trying to get into sports, I can teach them some things."

Daden's a kid who doesn't give up--and won't give up, until he reaches his forever home.

"I just move forward," he said.
