Joseph emanates joy; I mean, look at his smile!
Joseph was born with a deformity of his left foot and ankle that prevented him from walking or getting around on his own. But after corrective surgery and receiving physical therapy, he can now walk without help from anyone — using a walker to get around! Watch how fast he goes in the video!
Like many other boys his age, Joseph is fascinated with all things related to transportation. He likes to see busses, boats, ambulances, planes and anything else that helps people get from one place to the next.
His caregivers say that he is very good at communicating and that his speech is excellent. Joseph speaks in full sentences, and can think through some tougher questions that require more than a yes or no answer. He has a favorite caregiver, but he knows all of his caregivers by name.
He also has a good memory and can recite poems and songs. Check out the video!
Although he is making the best of his situation by learning new things and making new friends, he is still in great need of a family that will love him and adopt him as their own. With the right attention and medical resources, Joseph can thrive.
A $3000 Special Blessings Grant is available to help cover the fees for his adoption through Holt.
