Editor's Note: Window on the Clearwater has joined the Wednesday's Child network to help spread the word about children that are waiting for families to give them the loving care that they need. Each Wednesday we will profile a different child. For more information about Wednesday's Child and how you can be involved check the web site at: http://www.icwrtc.org/wednesdays-child-1.
Getting to know Josh is such a rewarding experience. Not only will you be amazed at his ability to solve a Rubik's Cube in under one minute, you'll see how his easy-going personality and big smile will make you feel like fast friends. Josh has such a resilient personality, helping him to find the positive in even the toughest of situations. He is funny, kind and outgoing-yet has a calm and quiet way about him as well.
Josh loves Boy Scouting, football, track, and riding bikes and is looking forward to joining some team sports once he is adopted. He would love an active family who would take him to the beach for his first time and might be up for an adventure like skydiving with him! Josh loves all kinds of animals, with wolves being his favorite. You won't have to force him to eat healthy, as he's not one for soda or sweets-he will however wipe out an entire pizza on his own pretty quickly! Josh enjoys school when he is feeling supported. He reports that he is great at math but could use some help from his new family in learning to stay better focused and organized. Josh would love to someday go to college and become either a counselor or a police officer, to help others.
Josh and his Permanency Team are searching for either a one or two parent family where Josh can be the only child in the home. He would be happy with either a rural or more urban home setting and is ok with whether or not his new family attends church regularly. A great fit for Josh would be caregivers who communicate clearly and can set healthy boundaries for him. Perhaps the most important thing that Josh wants folks to know about himself is that he is truly excited about being adopted and becoming part of a new family and can't wait to start this new chapter in his life! If getting to know a bit about Josh has left you thinking he may be a great fit for your family, please inquire today to learn even more information about the great young man!
