Loves being the center of attentionJosiah (8521D)
Josiah is a social and loving boy who loves to be the center of attention. He is very affectionate and often shows his appreciation by giving hugs. He does well with positive attention, praise, and structure. Josiah enjoys many activities including air hockey, basketball, and playing pool. At home, Josiah likes to ride his bike, watch cartoons, and play video games. Josiah enjoys having books read to him, especially his favorite book, “Trucks and Tractor Trailers.” When asked about his favorite food, Josiah said he loves salad and enjoys spaghetti, chicken nuggets, macaroni, pizza, and chocolate milk!
Josiah needs a child-centered home that offers structure, routine, and predictability. Potential placements must encourage attachment by being accessible and responsive. He would do well with a two-parent home with parents who can be role models of a healthy relationship. If a single parent family is interested, they should have a strong support system. Potential placements should be knowledgeable about trauma-informed care and understand how trauma can affect children throughout their lives. (8521DSG) Marion County
