If Nadir had three wishes they would be to be a professional basketball player, to be a professional boxer and to have a nice life by finding a forever family. The 13-year-old describes himself as “helpful, talkative, nice and fun.” He likes to laugh and make jokes. He also enjoys boxing and playing basketball and dancing.
Enrolled in the seventh grade, he is an excellent student and a good athlete. His favorite subjects are math, gym, reading and social sciences. Nadir says that education is very important to him and he makes sure to be on time for school each day.
Nadir also likes to write poems, one of which is called “The Things I Don’t Have.”
“The things I don’t have is a mom and a dad
That is why I sometimes stress and why I’m sad.
People say be thankful for what you’ve got,
But when they say that, all you see is tears and snot.
I wish I had people who could hold me tight
All through the day and all through the night.
In his foster placement, Nadir keeps his room clean and helps with the chores. He would like to get better at communicating his feelings and concerns to his caretaker. Nadir has experienced many separations and losses in his life and would thrive in patient, loving “forever” family that would provide him with a structured environment and help him reach his considerable potential.
