In addition to the social challenges, there have been financial ones too. Aiden doesn’t qualify for scholarships or other financial aid because he’s too young so his mother, Vanessa, has had to foot the bill.

With a pile of degrees in his future, Aiden isn’t sure where what kind of career he wants but a driver’s license is in his immediate future.
