Today, if asked about his 'interests', Joseph would politely and enthusiastically explain his love of football and tell of his successes playing for the local Under 9's team. He also enjoys training hard at the local swimming club. He loves to go on bike rides and to play computer games. He would tell of his enjoyment in playing with his friends and will unashamedly express his love for his brother, his 'best friend' who is not adopted. In many ways, Joseph is a typical noisy, fun-loving, energetic nine year-old, whose bedroom wall boasts an array of achievement certificates in both sport and school work.
