"Joshua is such a sweetheart!" is the most commonly said phrase by Joshua's caseworker. An eager-to-please youth, he has a great smile and a great sense of humor. Joshua takes pride in his appearance. Friendly and sociable, Josh loves music, learning about cars, sports (especially football and basketball), origami, sushi and building model airplanes. In special education classes, Joshua is doing well and works hard to improve and learn new skills. He particularly enjoys math and activity time. His dream for the future is to be in a forever family. He hopes to be adopted and would do well in a home with older children who can be a positive role model, and he would love pets. Joshua aspires to be a coach or gym teacher one day. Because of Joshua's many disappointments, he needs his next family to be committed to parenting him forever.
Be sure to check out the video below on Joshua, as well as his Adoption Chronicle. A sweet youth, you can see his beautiful smile around 1:38 when he talks about buying presents for his big sister!
