Aylin is a girl with a great sense of humor. Those who meet her immediately note her big smile, and it is clear that she takes pride in her appearance. Aylin enjoys working on craft projects, being outside in the community, movies, dance and choir. 

Aylin's Social Development

Aylin is now in her freshman year of high school and enjoys her classes. She easily makes friends and enjoys spending time with her peers. In the past, Aylin needed some support with peer engagement and managing the routine and structure of a school day.  However, she has been able to utilize her coping skills to address and manage any new situations. 

Best Family Match

Legally freed for adoption, Aylin is very much looking forward to becoming part of a loving family. Her social worker feels that she will do best in a family with a mom and dad, two mothers or a single mother. Aylin will do well as an only child or with other children in the home. She has mentioned liking little kids. A family for Aylin must support her relationship with her younger sister who resides in Worcester County. Aylin also visits with her biological mother twice a year, as specified in an open adoption agreement. 

Who Can Adopt

If you’re at least 18, 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 will be a good fit.

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