Jordan, an exuberant sixteen-year-old, was adopted in December 2014 after years in the foster care system. He has lived in eighteen different placements! About three years ago, Jordan expressed an interest in dance and later was awarded a scholarship to one of the best dance studies in New England. It was there that he met and started to build a relationship with one of the dance instructors, who ultimately contacted CFCS to begin the process of becoming a pre-adoptive resource for Jordan. He moved in with the instructor and her husband during the summer of 2013. Although it has not been an easy transition for him, and building trusting relationships with his new parents has been difficult, his pre-adoptive family remained committed to him, and over time, Jordan felt ready to be adopted. It was a special day for Jordan, his new family, and his CFCS social workers.
