CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - I am so pleased to introduce you this week to Josiah, a soft-spoken, genteel 9-year old boy who is hoping to be adopted and would be a perfect fit for a family not wanting a loud, rambunctious atmosphere around the home.
He loves school and already dreams about being an engineer! And by the way, he has two adorable sisters that would all love to be kept together as they grow up.
I think the thing that struck me most about Josiah is the last comment he makes in the video. He was responding to a question which asked him what a Forever Family means to him, and he stated that “it’s somebody you get to stay with until you’re 18 years old”.
Wow! I’m hoping somebody seeing this can show Josiah how much more a family can give him than just a place to stay until he’s 18 years old, that was a kick in the gut!
Thanks for checking this out and please spread the word if you know anyone thinking about adopting!!
