Joseph is JOYFUL! Can’t you see?
Every picture seems to capture the way his whole face lights up when he smiles!
Joseph recently turned 5 years old. He is active, extroverted and energetic. The fact that he is a happy boy and gets along well with others has been notated in his file more than once. Joseph loves to play outdoors. He also enjoys looking at picture books, playing games, and playing with toys. An electric car tops the list as his favorite.
Joseph was born with cleft lip and cleft palate. He has already received surgery for his lip, however his palate has not been repaired. Although his pronunciation is sometimes unclear, Joseph is on track with his language development and has a good vocabulary. His hearing is normal, and he has had no ear infections. Some of Joseph’s teeth have been affected by his cleft.
You can read some information about CL/CP as well as a list of informative, real life blogs right here on this site.
Joseph is currently on WACAP’s designated list through an orphanage partnership. He is considered Special Focus. WACAP actually met Joseph during a recent visit, and they have more pictures available to interested families. They would love to request an update on his development for a potential family as well! Please contact the Advocacy Team or Elizabeth for more information on beginning the journey to bring joyful Joseph home.
