Kareem, who recently celebrated his 11th birthday, has no difficulty in describing himself. "I'm terrific, smart, and helpful," he declares. He is also very definite about his future career. "I want to be a firefighter," he says, "so I can rescue people from fires."
Currently in the third grade, Kareem earns good grades. Music and gym are his favorite subjects.
Kareem wants very much to be adopted. He is close to his siblings and the contact should be maintained.
