PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — At 11 years old, Jaden is already a pretty good chef and baker.

"I like to decorate cakes with frosting and toppings," he says.

And he takes his responsibilities seriously.

His social worker, Jamie Raddatz, says Jaden loves being a big brother. "He has a younger brother he visits monthly, so that's important to him," Raddatz says.

It's also important, Raddatz adds, for Jaden to find a family who will help him stay in touch with his younger brother.

Jaden says he feels protective of his brother. He says that's what having a family is all about.

"It's like a relation that keeps you in comfort," he says. "And they give you protection and love and everything you need, so you're not lonely or sad at all."
