When you're 9 years-old, an afternoon playing video games is at the top of your wish list. For Aiden, battling make-believe villain and getting lost in a world far away, is a chance to escape the harder thing in his own reality.
A forever home, that is usually one thing the kids living in Utah foster care usually wish for. That wish came true for one teen KSL featured on our Wednesday's Child Telethon.

Brinley has a genetic disorder called Angelman's Syndrome, which causes developmental delays and affects her ability to talk.
KSL TV is committed to raising awareness about children lingering in the foster care system. For many, time is running out for them to be adopted.
When you think of foster care, many people think of young children, but in Utah, the majority of kids in foster care are teenagers. The odds are stacked against them and time is running out for them to find an adoptive home.
There are close to 3,000 children living in foster care. Getting adopted from foster care can often be a waiting game for the kids and when it's brothers hoping to stay together -- the wait can be even longer.
Sometimes, everyone needs a little help — someone to show us the way. 18-year-old Jaid needs just that
When you think of foster care, most of us assume it's full of babies and small children - but that's not the case.
