He especially enjoys sporting activities like soccer and skateboarding and likes to be outdoors. Al also enjoys playing video games and the "Magic: The Gathering" card game. Al enjoys one-on-one attention and would like a positive male role model in his life. He would love to be in a family where he can play with children his age in the neighborhood.

Al would benefit from a family that is patient, able to be proactive with education and have open communication with the school system. The family would need to be willing to engage in support services for him. Al would do best in an active family preferably with older children who would be able to provide regular supervision and attention. Al would prefer a structured, two-parent home. He will need to maintain ongoing contact with his sister.
