Lily is Looking for a Mom and Dad to Complete Her Life
Lily is an adventurous 14 year-old girl who enjoys playing sports like volleyball and football. She is very resilient young lady. "I'm the type of person who will climb a tree, but if I fall off I'll still try to climb it. Even if I have a sprained ankle I'll still try to climb the tree until someone tells me, 'Lily, you're hurt. You can't climb the tree.'"
More than anything else, Lily dreams of being a part of a loving family. "I'd like a mom and a dad," said Lily. "It'd mean everything. It would make my life complete."
She is definitely open to having siblings. "I love little kids, so I would like a younger sibling to play with, and I'm really good with babies," said Lily.
Lily enjoys reading, writing and putting daily entries into her journal.
Her social worker says that Lily may come off as a bit reserved at first, but once she gets to know a person she will quickly open up. Most importantly, Lily just wants to feel loved and secure.
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.
Adopting 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 www.mareinc.org. Start the process today and give a waiting child a permanent place to call home.
