Rafael has an inquisitive nature about the world! This kid is keen on learning more about cars and electronics. When he wants to switch up activities, Rafael spends his time playing video games. He craves relationships with adults and peers and has a big heart for cats. When he has worked up an appetite, a yummy slice of pepperoni pizza is sure to hit the spot. If you asked Rafael, he would tell you that blue is the best color.

He enjoys attending school as a sixth grader.

Rafael would do best in a two-parent family residing in an urban area, in which he can be the only child; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He is hopeful for a home that has feline family members to help care for. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.


For Missouri children, both homestudied and non-homestudied Missouri families are encouraged to inquire; only homestudied families from other states should do so.
