Takin custody of my 8 yr old nephew in a month!! need help

I am 17 years old turning 18 in one month, my nephew lost his dad in iraq and his mom left him and disappeared only to return with a bunch of legal crap regarding her son.  After it was all settled my parents have legal custody of him for the time being.  The plan was to let me have custody of him once I turn 18 for the sake that my parents have raised my older brother me and my sister.  I need help on all the important things a boy his age needs if anyone can help please let me know

First off, I would like to say that I really wish there were more men out there like you... that is willing to care for any child. I know that there r those that do.... and they r the ones to prove that not all guy are the same. So congratulations. Second, I have to agree with the last post. Most things are fairly basic, however, the child may also have emotionally needs that may or may not call for therapy. Good luck and god bless.
