Hi! I’m TJ Bossch. I am 2, almost 3 year’s old. I was recently diagnosed with autism. But, just like any child, I have unlimited potential! I have many specific things I’m working on at home, in therapy, and at school. I am making great progress! Because of this, I think it would be best if my house had the tools and toys that will help me excel further.
Do you attend school? If yes, what is your favorite subject?
I attend half days of school at united services. I love going to school and my teachers. My favorite part is going outside, climbing or playing with water.
What challenges/obstacles do you encounter?
I have trouble expressing myself by speaking. Sometimes I need to hangon to my straw to feel better, or listen to my favorite song. I really like to climb and run around, but I have trouble balancing and I need help. I have sensory issues, sometime I perceive things differently then other.
What do you want people to know about you?
I love my family and friends! I am a happy, snuggly, sweet boy. I get to do and learn new things everyday just like other kids, I just do it at my own pace. Please don’t think that just because I can’t speak doesn’t mean I can’t hear, understand, and respond. People tend to think that because I can’t speak and have trouble reading social situations, that I don’t want to be included, or even interacted with. That’s not true! Don’t just put me in the corner, that doesn’t help me.
What are your favorite hobbies?
I love collecting straws, and other stick like items. They help me feel better, but sometimes Mom and Dad say we have to put them away so we can focus on other things. I love Mickey Mouse! I watch it everyday. I also love playing with water, light up and music toys, and climbing and balancing.
Describe a day in the life of you
I wake up and get to watch some Mickey Mouse. Mom gets me ready and Dad take me to school. I have fun at school and eat lunch there. Then Mom or one of my grandparents pick me up, and I get to go home and play. I normally take a nap, sometimes I’m really tired because I don’t sleep great at night. At night Dad will take me for a long walk around the neighborhood and we wrestle. My new brother Daniel likes to watch, but he’s too little to play. Then Mom takes me upstairs and we snuggle for awhile, then go to bed.
What is your favorite color?
I don’t have one yet, but my favorite straw is red, so maybe red!

Wish Fountain Frequently Asked Questions
How does a Wish Fountain page work?
A Wish Fountain page allows our customers to create a shareable donation page for items that could help elevate the quality of life for their loved one. Customers can choose up any number of products and accessories for their wish list as well as post basic information about their loved one’s status. This page is then posted publicly so that family, friends and good Samaritans alike may donate funds towards the purchase of the items on the wish list.
All donations to a Wish Fountain page work like our eSpecial Needs eGift Cards. That customer receives the full value of the donation toward their Wish Fountain goal. We deduct no fees for this service, but does require all fund raised be redeemed at eSpecial Needs.
What determines a Wish Fountain page’s goal?
The goal for your Wish Fountain page is determined by the price of the products and accessories you choose at the time you choose them. This price is guaranteed for one year (12 months). Once the guarantee period is over, the actual order total is subject to change based on any manufacturer price changes, size changes or accessory changes are made.
If it turns out a price increase happens after the guarantee period, customers have two options:
- They may increase the goal amount listed on their page
- They may contribute the difference for later use with eSpecial Needs
What happens when the goal is reached?
Congratulations! If the goal has been met, eSpecial Needs will contact you to verify and ensure your order’s accuracy as well as get your approval prior to processing. Once that’s completed, it’s only a matter of time before your wish list is delivered!
What happens if I raise more money than the goal?
If a Wish Fountain page raises more than its original goal, the excess amount will be awarded in the form of an eSpecial Needs eGift Card which can then be used to purchase any other additional products the family may need. No refunds will be given to donators if an excess occurs.
Can donations be refunded?
Donations cannot be refunded under any circumstances.
Can I change the items on my Wish Fountain page?
Yes, you may change the products on your page at any time before purchase.
In a case where I’ve raised enough to get something on my wish list but not everything, can I choose to purchase an item with my collected funds before I hit my goal?
Of course! If you have raised enough funds for a specific item on your wish list, you may contact us and let us know that you’d like to purchase that item. Once purchased, the item will be removed from your list and your Wish Fountain goal will be altered to reflect the changes.
