I know that Joshua was a special child of Kris Aquino. She has openly told the public about it and was loved for being honest like that. Yesterday, i was able to watch Kris TV and Joshua and Bimby were there. Then, Kris asked Joshua a question, and i was shocked that Joshua spoke like a small child, cannot pronounce the word well. I thought his speech is okay. But it seems that his speech is as well affected by being a special child. But i was amazed at how tall he was!

Having a special child is a challenge to most parents but I am glad that the mum appreciate and acknowledge his child. It is good when you have such mum. Some mum go to the extent of hiding their children from the public.

Kris Aquino is a celebrity here in the Philippines. She is at the moment a single parent, who loves his two sons so much, including the special child. In fact, she said that she has already allotted a big trust fund for the two kids specially to his special child. Her brother, Noynoy Aquino the president of the Philippines, even said that he didn't marry because he wants to take care of Joshua, Kris' special child.

It is very good to have such a supportive family. I wish the boy can be able to recognize how lucky he is to be sorrounded by a wonderful family.

Well Kris really raised Joshua well cause it is really quite hard to raise case like that.Maybe there are times and words that he are having difficulty in saying and pronouncing it.Base on how Joshua right now,it seems that he is really doing well, improving and trying to be better.

Joshua should really improve , because Kris sends her to an expensive school for special children. Though, she said Joshua can play the piano well. Josh beats me on that. I never ever learn how to play the piano, no matter how many lessons i had when i was in high school.

Speech delays and disorders are just one of the symptoms of atypical individuals. My daughter, having a case of mild Autism Spectrum Disorder, is experiencing some speech delays. She and Josh actually both go to the same speech clinic. We see him like every 2 weeks or something. Aside from his speech delays and sometimes child-like disposition, he is strikingly handsome! Yes, he is very tall...and he has beautiful eyes to boot. Whenever he raises his eyebrows, he reminds me of his father, Philip Salvador. And he has perfectly smooth skin, which I'm sure he gets from the Cojuangco side. He is a loving child, as all special kids are.

Really, your child goes to the same speech clinic where Joshua also goes? That's nice to hear. At least you were able to see Joshua in person. So he does look goo in person. On TV he isn't that good looking though. I can see that he is loving, because of the way he is so close to his yaya.

Yes. The same clinic. But not the same therapist. We started there last March, and have seen him there twice so far...the last time being this week. He goes there complete with yaya and PSGs. TV doesn't do him a lot of justice. Not only is he good-looking, but he is very pleasant, and well-mannered too.

Yes, i can see that he is a very pleasant and well-mannered boy. He is pampered with love and advises , not only by Kris but by all his Titos and Titas and cousins.

Well my friend, at least Joshua is lucky to have Kris as his mother. Kris can give him all he needs in life, including a brother who can take care of him in his old age, if ever Kris is gone on earth already.

Having a special child is both a challenge and a gift. It's nice to know that Josh is well loved by his mom and most especially by his uncle, the President. It's also nice of Pnoy to almost sacrifice his love life for his nephew's well being. That's the nightmare of parents who have special children. They keep asking the question "who will take care of my child when we're gone?"

Yes, that's true. That's the first thing they worry about when they are gone. Lucky for Kris , because her brother Noy didn't marry. Maybe Josh is really what he is thinking about too.

He is very lucky to have a mother like Kris because we can really see her effort to make the life Joshua to be as light and burden free as possible. I also saw on Kris tv i think that was last January, he was enrolled by Kris to a gym class and he is really so tall like his father and he is gaining muscles, his baby fats are starting to go away and he is on diet too, he is convinced by Kris to that gym and can you tell what his reward would be? A very expensive sports car! Lucky Josh!

Yeah, i saw that episode too. It was Jim, one of the gym instructor at The Biggest Loser show, that helps him. Indeed, Joshua has lost a lot of weight and he looks so tall now that he has a leaner body. I really hope that Joshua will learn how to drive, because even until now, his mind is that of a small child still.

i can relate well with people with special children. my 21-year old step-son is one. it's not that easy to take of them especially when you don't have enough money to send them to proper school for them, or send them to specialists. good for kris.

So you do have a special child too Neildc. Well, God provides for those with special children. And they say that families with special children treats them as their good luck in life.

Yes, we should all love our special child. They are after all our child and they need most of our attention, so they can grow more guided.

That is how it works in our brains.. if someone is tall you think they do exactly the same things as other people who look that tall (even if you know it's a special child). It's the same if you sit in a wheelchair, people think you are stupid or deaf as well. If you are not able to speak they think you are deaf or stupid or not able to lift your own glass. I guess it's a kind of imprent we have, our brains seem to be programmed that way.

I actually am amazed that Joshua was so tall, when her mother and the father are not tall people, my friend. Or maybe i just perceived his dad as not tall, because he has grown fat over the years. Though, looking back, during his youth he was a lanky one. Well, i guess that's why Josh is tall too.

This is a local TV talk show here in the Philippines Kalyni. The host is Kris Aquino, a famous celebrity here and a single parent to two kids and one of them is the special child, she openly make known to the public. She loves him so much, that she felt sad that when her marriage was annulled, some part of supposedly for his special child was given to his husband instead as his share in some properties acquired during their marriage. But she said, she can earn them again, because she has many shows and endorsements that amounts to millions per month.

He's 6 feet tall and despite of his disability he is well loved even by our President. Josh is still a very lucky boy to have a parent like Kris and an uncle like Noy.

Yes, indeed Josh is so lucky to have a mom like Kris and an uncle who loves him so much. In fact, it was said that Noynoy didn't marry because he is thinking of who will take care of Joshua, specially that Kris is so busy.
