Advocate Today: 3-Year Old “Joseph”

Joseph FB
“Joseph” was first introduced to our China Waiting Child list in February. 6 months later he still waits and we continue to pray for and advocate for him.  We would love to have you join us in sharing his story.

“Joseph” was born with cervical meningomyelocele on his neck. He had surgery for this when he was 14-months old and the procedure was successful. A CT scan report dated June 2014 notes that he may have hydrocephalus.

A family reviewing his file would be able to inquire more about this to see if this is a concern or not. His file notes delayed psychomotor development but it is stated that he does have normal muscle tension and is a smart boy.

Joseph 2
As of August 2014, he was able to crawl around and is fond of imitating his caretakers.

“Joseph” is on the CCCWA's shared referral list. He is from one of our orphanage partnerships and is designated as a Special Focus child so a family at any stage of the adoption process is eligible to adopt him.

Current America World families who are interested in welcoming “Joseph” into their family should contact their Family Coordinator about him.

Families who are not currently in the process of adopting with America World should fill out a  free PRE-APPLICATION and our Intake staff will follow up with you right away.

Any questions about “Joseph” or any Waiting Child can be directed to our China staff at or 800-429-2269.
