Wednesday’s Child: Joseph, 17, fond of taking care of animals

The following information is provided by Wednesday’s Child, an organization that helps Idaho foster children find permanent homes.

Joseph, 17, is an outgoing young man with a passion for riding anything with wheels, including his bike, electric scooter, longboard or roller blades. When he’s not busy being active, he can be found reading novels by his favorite authors, JK Rowling and Rick Riordan, or building something awesome with Legos or K’nex. Board games are another of his favorite pastimes and he would really like to one day start a Rubik’s Cube club at school. Those closest to Joseph describe him as a smart and funny jokester who is extremely talented and creative when it comes to art and building things.

Joseph understands the need for a good education and is working hard to be successful at it so that one day he can fulfill his dream of going to college to become a computer programmer or coder. Caregivers who can help support him educationally will be an integral part of helping him to realize his future dreams.

Joseph describes his ideal Forever Family as including both a mom and a dad. He looks forward to each of those relationships and what they can add to his life. A family where he can be the only, or the youngest, child in the home is an ideal fit for him. Joseph values his faith and wants a Christian family that shares his religious beliefs and attends church regularly.

He has a real affinity for animals and hopes that his new home will have pets that he can help care for and spend time with.

Joseph is sure to add fun and adventure to his future family. If you think that your family would be a great match for this resilient teen, inquire today (see below).
