Kassidy is a bright young lady who is looking for a family. She is a child who enjoys being the center of attention. She's the type of kid who will listen to the radio while singing the words of her favorite song into a hairbrush.

Kassidy’s interests include singing, dancing, and doing arts-and-crafts projects. She likes to joke around and enjoys spending time with adults. In school, Kassidy’s teachers report that she is academically on target and having one of the strongest academic years of her school career.

 

The Ideal Family for Kassidy

Legally freed for adoption, Kassidy would thrive in a household as the younger or only child. Her social worker is exploring families where Kassidy can have a mother figure, which could be a single mother, two mothers, or a mother/father configuration. Once Kassidy’s permanent family has been identified, it would be beneficial for her to have continued contact with members of her birth family.

Who Can Adopt?

If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and have room in your heart, you may be a perfect match to adopt a waiting child. Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; LGBTQ+ singles and couples. As an adoptive parent, you won’t have to pay any fees. Adoption from foster care is completely free in Massachusetts.

The process to adopt a child from foster care includes training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you. These steps will help match you with a child or sibling group that your family will fit well with.

To learn more about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at (617) 964-6273 or visit www.mareinc.org. Start the process today and give a waiting child a permanent place to call home.
