12 years old * on the shared list * $4,000 agency grant (Madison Adoption Associates) * Josh lived at Bethel China for his first 5 years *
“Josh has an artistic soul and is a gifted musician. Self taught by simply listening, he can hear a song one time and then play it on a keyboard!
“Josh’s first five years were spent at Bethel China, a community for children with visual impairment that prepared him to live his life to the fullest, despite his special need. While there he learned how to walk with a cane, read Braille, and embrace his musical gift. Bethel also has shared a handful of priceless photographs of Josh while he lived there.
Currently he attends a school for blind children outside of the orphange. He uses a cane to get around but can also navigate sidewalks without it. Josh is independent in his care. Not only does he know Braille but he is also learning English and French. Josh lives in an orphange linked with the One Sky program. He is doing well through this program however it goes without saying he will thrive with the love of a nurturing family to call his own.” – Rainbow Kids
