Altariq is handsome, sweet boy with a smile that could light up anyone’s day! Kind and generous are two of the best words to describe Altariq. His favorite activities are playing and watching basketball (he is an NY Knicks fan!), drawing (cartoon characters are his specialty), playing video games and most recently learning to cook. He is so excited to be playing basketball this winter for the local recreation league. Altariq has shared that he would like to be a chef when he is older so he can cook for people. He sees how happy people get when they are eating a good meal with one another and wants to be able to help bring happiness to the lives of others! Altariq enjoys school and is doing well academically. He loves math but doesn’t have the same passion for language arts.
Altariq is so looking forward to finding his forever family. When he thinks of holidays and shared meals, he thinks of spending time with family and is looking forward to having a family all his own someday. He says that he would like a home with a mother and father and no other children. However, Altariq would benefit from a home with another child, preferably a child who is older than he is who would be a good role model. Altariq has biological siblings and would like to be able to maintain those relationships post-adoption.
