In this week's A Family for Me, we meet 8-year-old Joseph. He's one of nearly 1,400 kids in Washington available for adoption.

He likes to be active and Karate is his favorite sport. Joseph is also a superhero fan.

Teachers say Joseph is a good learner who picks up concepts quickly. They also say he's bright and curious about the things around him.

Counselors say Joseph would thrive in a home with two parents who understand the needs of children who've experienced trauma and neglect.
