Meet Joseph!

Joseph is 16 years old, and is always smiling and eager to try new things and go on adventures. He is a determined and curious child.  Once he sets his mind on something, his curiosity has no bounds.  When Joseph's attention is engaged, he is motivated and calm especially with caregivers who are persistent, patient, and are willing to be repetitive with direction. Once Joseph is comfortable, he is all smiles and ready to show his personality.

He enjoys animals, he is an animal lover, trips to the zoo are Joseph's favorite adventure. Joseph currently lives close to a beach he loves going to the ocean and watching waves.  Joseph is diagnosed with Down syndrome. He is an extra special teen who requires patience and understanding. He benefits from frequent prompts when moving to a new environment or changing his schedule.

Joseph thrives in a highly structured environment. He enjoys spending time and interacting with people. Although he has a limited vocabulary, Joseph finds unique ways to communicate. Joseph loves Michael Jackson, Thriller is his favorite, play the music video for him and he will show you his dance moves. He is a very sweet and open child who will be a special addition to any family who will love him unconditionally!

Joseph will do well with a family who offers patience, consistency, and careful supervision. He will benefit from a family who is able to spend a lot of one-on-one time with him and access resources he needs. Joseph needs a family who will care for him for life or help him transition to a setting where he will be cared for by caregivers who oversee his day to day activities. Joseph will do well as the youngest child in the home.

Placement fees are waived since this is an adoption from foster care.

If you are interested in Joseph and you are on the NDSAN registry, please email Molly, and she will send your home study and family profile to her worker.

If you have a home study, but you are NOT on the NDSAN registry, please have your worker send your home study and family profile to Joseph's worker, who is listed on Joseph's page here. (Joseph's worker's information is visible to those who have an account with AdoptUSKids.) The NDSAN cannot send your information if you are not on our registry.

Please know that Joseph may be placed by the time your home study is completed, and getting a home study will not guarantee Joseph's placement with your family. If you are new to the adoption process and would like to learn more about adoption, please start with our webinar here.
