*URGENT- AGING OUT!*

Joshua is a sociable and energetic boy. Joshua isn’t afraid to approach groups of people and he enjoys attention. Joshua likes to imitate actions of other children and can follow simple instructions. He enjoys singing, dancing, and engaging in group games. Joshua shares his toys with other children. He can dress and undress independently. He knows where to put his dirty clothes. Joshua is physically healthy and has never been ill, except with an occasional cold. He is currently attending a Special Education class. He can sit still in class and is able to match shapes, sort colors, and identify body parts. Joshua can color, trace lines, build, and connect blocks. He can be trained to do things with adult supervision. We hope just the right family comes forward for Joshua and that he makes it home before his 16th birthday!

There is a $3,000 agency grant for Joshua’s adoption with the adoption agency.  Joshua needs a family with an approved home study to be able to hold his file or move forward with adopting him.
