Name: Joshua

Custody Holding Agency: Licking County

Description: Joshua is a wonderful and energetic child. He loves being outside taking walks and is fascinated by the wind. He will sit and watch the wind blow for hours and always tries to be out in the wind if he can. Joshua has made great strides in speech therapy and is now using words to communicate with others along with his sign language words. In school he has also made some improvements and is able to stay focused on one activity at a time. He loves puzzles, music, pinwheels, and games on the IPAD. While Josh needs constant supervision he enjoys being with others and feels soothed when his back is rubbed and he is held. To get more information about Joshua, please contact Gail Adams, Adoption Worker at Licking County DJFS (740) 670-8805 or
