Forever Family Friday – Joshua

Happy Forever Family Friday everyone. We have officially kicked off summer and we are getting ready to celebrate Father’s Day this weekend and will then roll right into celebrating Independence Day. Wow…Time just keeps rolling by. I feel like I just put up a Forever Family Friday post and poof it’s suddenly time to start working on another one. I lovingly talk to you guys each week about a different kid in the foster care system. Every one of them has a different story as to why they are in foster care. It could be from neglect or abuse or abandonment or overwhelming problems or finances or mental illness or lack of employment or drug and alcohol addiction or numerous other things…The reason matters not…what really matters is that almost all parents love their children and want the absolutely best for them but heartbreakingly many times problems such as the ones mentioned above interfere, disrupt and change the paths of their lives. That’s where we come in. We have the ability to positively intervene in the lives of these foster kids. You have the ability to positively intervene and make a difference in the lives of these kids. They all long and desire to happily live in a loving home with parents and a family. Here’s a young man that is valuable and amazing and desires just that…a family. We need to do all we can to ensure that he has that family. Please allow me to introduce you to Joshua.

Joshua is 13 years old and lives in Arizona! He who loves to listen to rap artists like Eminem and play games on his tablet. Joshua is also starting to get involved with basketball and football and would love to play on his team at school someday.

Joshua’s perfect weekend would include going to out for pizza and maybe going to Disneyland or New York City to see the Statue of Liberty. He would also love to spend time on the beach or get a nice veggie burrito at Chipotle. To top off his perfect weekend, he would have a big bag of Takis or Hot Cheetos because he loves spicy snacks. Joshua’s ideal family would provide him with a lot of structure and one-on-one attention. He hopes his adoptive family will be willing to play football with him and keep him in contact with his brothers and current foster mother in Arizona.
