Rafael Jr. is a bright and astute 11-year-old kid. He’s also outgoing and goofy in turns, never afraid to speak his mind. His eyes reveal a confidence and maturity beyond his years, probably due to the trauma and hardship he’s already suffered in his young life. Rafael was an adorable one year old, just learning to walk, when his father started using meth. While his father was home physically, he was never there emotionally or mentally, and he would often sleep for days.
