- Case #80127
Meet Joshua! Laughing with others at a good joke, playing hard, and avoiding as many Brussel sprouts as possible may be at the top of this youth's list. Joshua speaks of owning his very own dream car one day, but his fullest hopes and dreams are set on having a better life with his forever family and that special person to call "mom". Joshua enjoys video games, creating artwork, and riding his bike; especially racing on his bike. His favorite foods are pizza, hamburgers, hot wings, and chicken. His favorite toys are Hot Wheels, swords, and the newest video game. At school, Joshua finds PE, math, and reading to be among his favorite subjects. He has many interests and loves to learn new things and try new things. He says he believes in God and likes going to church. Joshua has an outgoing, creative spirit that will enrich the lives of his forever family. If you want to connect with this amazing child, take him to go see the latest Marvel or Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie and you'll make a great start. Oh, and don't forget to bring along a funny joke or two.
Joshua's forever family needs to be experienced and patient when it comes to meeting his needs and independent spirit. They need to accept him for who he is and be capable of committing to him with grace and mercy. Joshua's family will show patience while he builds trust and relationships with them. He will need very consistent praise and encouragement with strong structure and guidance from a safe and trusting family for a successful transition to his forever home. Joshua's family will pick up on his special traits and nurture them so he can gain confidence and reach his full potential. An out-of-state family may not be best for him, due to the nature of his lifelong relationships.
