Biography
Meet Kadeem, Kalif, Urian, and Nasir!

Kadeem is quiet and intelligent. He likes school; his favorite school subject is science. Kadeem recently made Honor Roll, and attends an after-school science club four days out of the week. Kadeem prefers independent activities, such as playing video games or exploring things on his computer. He does enjoy watching television and playing around with his three younger brothers. Kadeem looks forward to a career in law enforcement. Like most siblings, Kadeem and his brothers tend to bicker amongst themselves, but they also have an unbreakable sibling bond. Kadeem’s favorite food is spaghetti and meatballs, and he enjoys just about any type of pasta, with the exception of lasagna. Kadeem is not a fan of meat on the bones and explained that “it is gross.” Kadeem becoming more independence by learning how to prepare simple healthy meals.

Kalif is articulate and sensitive. He enjoys being physically active. Kalif’s favorite outdoor activities are swimming, playing football and soccer, jumping on the trampoline, and going to the playground. If you find him inside, he is most likely watching videos on his tablet, watching his favorite television show “SpongeBob SquarePants,” or playing with his younger brothers. Kalif is the second oldest of his three siblings, and he enjoys teaching his younger brothers and telling them about what he learns in school. Kalif enjoys school and is very proud of his good grades, especially in his favorite subject, reading. Kalif aspires to be a content creator when he grows up. Kalif gets along well with all of his siblings, but he does admit that they bicker and argue over trivial things. Despite this typical sibling relationship, Kalif and his siblings have a strong bond. Despite his love of cheeseburgers, pizza, french fries, and hotdogs, Kalif has an athletic physical build, for which he proudly credits his “high metabolism.”

Urian is an affectionate, and is well known for using his manners. He also loves being physically active. Some of his favorite outdoor activities are swimming, riding his bike or scooter, jumping on the trampoline, or going to amusement parks. Urian has courage and proudly shares about his ability to ride the largest roller coaster at the park. If he can’t be outside, you will find Urian painting, playing video games, or listening to songs with his younger brother. Urian aspires to be a YouTuber when he gets older. Being the second youngest of his three siblings, Urian tends to have a loud voice and leading attitude, while trying to provide guidance to his younger brother and assert his presence among his older brothers. Urian’s favorite foods are chili dogs and “anything with beans!” However, don’t think you’ll celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in a traditional way, as he does not like corned beef!

Nasir is affectionate and fun-loving! He loves to make friends and play outside. Nasir looks up to his three older brothers and is always trying to do what they do, whether it is performing tricks on the trampoline or coloring and painting. When he is not swimming, riding his scooter, or going on rides at amusement parks, you can find Nasir at his favorite place, Chuck E. Cheese, eating pepperoni pizza. Nasir aspires to be a firefighter when he grows up so he can help people, similar to his favorite superhero, Captain America. Nasir started school this year and is very proud of his ability to write his name and emerging skill of spelling various words. Nasir is of average size for his age, and he burns off most of his calories by being so physically active. His favorite foods are hotdogs, pizza, chicken nuggets and meatballs, but like his brothers, you will not catch him eating any meat on the bone! And sorry bacon lovers, Nasir is not a fan!

Kadeem, Kalif, Urian, and Nasir’s ideal forever family would be kind, gentle, with a lot of space, and a large dog, preferably a husky! They would like the family composition to include a female, or a traditional nuclear family unit. They are hopeful to locate a family that has no more than three children already residing in the home.

Kadeem, Kalif, Urian, and Nasir’ have a strong connection with their birth mother, and therefore, it is extremely important that their forever family is willing to support and maintain this connection.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Kadeem, Kalif, Urian, and Nasir.
