Aiden is an energetic and sweet 11-year-old boy who loves to laugh. He is happiest when he is running, climbing outside and playing sports.

His indoor activities include playing with cars and trucks, building with LEGOs, and collecting Pokémon cards. He also likes to have books read to him before he goes to bed.

Aiden is a big sports fan and when he grows up he would like to be Tom Brady. If that doesn’t work out, Aiden says that he would like to be a fireman. Aiden plays well with others, as well as on his own.

Aiden does well in school and gets along with his teachers and peers. He receives speech services, as well as emotional and behavioral support to help him stay focused in class.

Legally freed for adoption, Aiden is searching for a family of any constellation with either no children in the home or with children who are older than he is. An ideal family will be able to provide Aiden with individualized attention, consistency, and structure.

A family must be open to Aiden visiting with his birth mother twice a year in Massachusetts. Aiden also has an older sister who he is very attached to and he will need to keep in contact with her.

If you are at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and room in your heart, you may be a perfect match to adopt Aiden.

Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; LGBTQ singles and couples. The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you.

To learn more about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at (617) 964-6273 or visit www.mareinc.org. MARE can help connect you with a child or sibling group with whom your family may be a good match.
