HI! My name is Joshua.

"You can call me Josh!

Josh is an affectionate, playful and energetic fourteen-year-old boy of African-American descent. He is described by those who know him as respectful, kind and friendly. He enjoys being outdoors, going for car rides and watching television. Josh is on the Autism Spectrum and is non-verbal. He communicates his thoughts and feelings using facial expressions, hand gestures and by using his IPAD.

Josh currently attends school, where he is learning at the kindergarten level. Despite his disability, Josh shows a strong interest in learning. His teachers report that he listens to directions and does his best to complete the tasks that are requested of him. He has formed positive relationships with both his peers and teachers at school .

Not yet legally freed for adoption, Josh would thrive in a loving two-parent household, with or without other children. An ideal family would be able to provide Josh with unconditional support and advocate for his needs. A family should also be open to maintaining contact with Josh’s biological parents in Massachusetts.
