Jaiden Rogers has not had an easy life and he is only 12 years old. He was adopted by Natalie and Tim Rogers when he was two years old in 2007. When the couple picked up their son from Georgia to take him to live with them in Colorado, they found the toddler was malnourished. He had been born with fetal alcohol syndrome.

The boy had been neglected so much in his first two years of life that his new family found him eating off the dog dish once. In the first year, Jaiden would walk into his parents room in the middle of the night to touch their faces and make sure they wouldn't abandon him. With a lot of time, love, and patience, Jaiden came to trust that his family was real.
