While everyone has been stuck at home to slow the spread of COVID-19 virus, not many have been as stuck at 16-year-old Aaron.
When someone in Aaron’s group foster home tested positive for the virus, the normally active teen had to stay isolated in his room waiting for test results. During his quarantine, Aaron played video games and filled a binder with drawings.
Aaron typically spends much of his time playing basketball, lifting weights and doing other exercises. He is fiercely committed to self-improvement through fitness.
“I went from 160 pounds to 119,” he says, adding that he has gone from being unable to do a single push-up to cranking out 20 or more in a set.
Aaron, who wants to be a police officer when he grows up, says he wants to be part of a forever family that is active and interested in fitness.
Aaron would thrive in any family dynamic – single parent, two parent, as an only child, one among siblings. Like any teen boy, Aaron would benefit from growing up with a strong male role model in the house.
