Wednesday’s Child – Juan hopes to fight homelessness someday 

Z-Wednesday's Child-Meet Juan

The following information is provided by Wednesday’s Child, an organization that helps Idaho foster children find permanent homes. 

Juan, 17, is an amazing teen with a huge heart. Those who know him best describe him as kind, fun to spend time with, and a young man who prides himself on keeping his space neat and organized. Juan’s active hobbies include long-boarding, hiking, skating, playing football, bowling, and playing pickle ball. If the weather stops him from being active, he can usually be found building with Legos, playing video games, listening to music, drawing, journaling his thoughts, or with his nose buried in a good James Patterson book. 

This outgoing young man also loves to spend time traveling and is a big animal lover. He hopes that once he gets settled into his new family home, he will be able to adopt a sweet and chubby cat to call his own. Being creative is important to Juan and he dreams of one day owning his own landscaping business where he can hone his creative skills into spectacular yard art. Juan considers his Christian faith an important part of who he is and has a real heart for helping others who are struggling. He looks forward to becoming successful in his business so that he can someday help out families who are dealing with homelessness. 

Juan is excited about the possibility of having a fresh start in life with a fun, committed and caring adoptive family that he hopes will remain in his life into young adulthood and well beyond. Juan’s Permanency Team describes the best fit for him as either a family where he can be the only child or a home with older siblings. He is open to any kind of parental makeup. Juan’s team is particularly interested in Idaho and Utah families but is open to hearing from any family that feels they may be a good fit for him. 

Juan deserves all of the good things that life has to offer and just needs a loving family in order to reach his full potential and have a wonderful future ahead of him. Get more information on Juan at
