All About the Child
RJ is a shining spirit, no matter the circumstances. He is a beautiful soul who makes the most of every situation. Being an optimist that is respectful towards adults are just some of the many phenomenal traits RJ possesses. To have him around would mean to be surrounding yourself with energies of charisma, creativeness, and someone who cares. He has a smile that lights up a room and a wonderful sense of fashion. RJ loves doing hair and being able to express his creativity through fashion more than anything. Having a career in the fashion industry is one of his goals; this is where his true passions can come to life. RJ has said he "wants to be an inspiring person that will change lives." He loves to experiment with creating his own clothing and redesigning his room. Aside from being a creative genius, he also enjoys being active. You'll most likely find RJ spending those hot summer days in a pool swimming or spiking a volleyball. If you could imagine those fun-filled summer days, they'd also be filled with music, RJ singing karaoke, movie watching, and, most importantly, spending quality time with family. With an adventurous spirit, this kiddo dreams of visiting California one day. The most unique thing about RJ is his love for vegetables! After a busy afternoon, his favorite foods to munch on are lima beans, carrots, and broccoli. If RJ had superpowers, he would be fine with whatever his powers would be as long as he got to wear a cape to save people. His favorite colors are red, black, and gold.

This charming seventh-grader enjoys attending PE and advanced choir class.

A two-parent family in an urban location, in which RJ can be the only child is preferred; however, his caseworker will consider all family types. He would like to remain in contact with his siblings following placement. Financial assistance may be available for adoption-related services.
