Curious Nine-Year-Old Loves Music

Joseph is a beautiful 9-year-old child that requires special attention from a very special family. Despite daily health challenges, Joseph has a personality that is sure to warm your heart. He enjoys hugs, attention, and lots of affection. Joseph loves being introduced to new stimuli and learning how to respond to it. He is very curious, as he is the kind of child that focuses on new things intensely until he figures them out.

Joseph is making progress developmentally and physically. His fine motor skills have improved over time as he grows and strives to perfect daily tasks. Joseph loves listening to music and gets very excited at the sound of any kind of music. Cartoons that include music and movement Joseph understands also captures this sweet child's attention. Joseph's family will need to be resourceful, patient, committed, and full of unconditional love to share with Joseph.
