RICHMOND, Va. — Whether he is tossing around the football during the year or holding a winning hand of “Skip-Bo”, Ashton enjoys being active. When he was asked his favorite subject in school, Ashton stated, “P. E. because it’s the closest thing to recess!” He has already made significant improvements in the classroom.

Ashton is a nice young man with quite the sense of humor. He enjoys a variety of music and can rock out to Michael Jackson and Metallica, all the same. You are bound to win him over with a strawberry milkshake.

Ashton has three siblings and family is very important to him. Ashton is doing well in his current placement and continues to process the “good and bad” of adoption. He is seeking a family just like his current one, a family that will teach him things and take him to church. Ashton will do best in a two-parent home and could benefit from being the youngest child in the family.

In Virginia, we have over 860 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 -The Deborah J Johnston Foundation celebrates National Adoption Month, our “30 Kids in 30 Days” initiative is to bring awareness to 30 kids who are available for forever homes, but also to shed light on the other 830 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.
