Read 15-Year-Old’s Touching Letter to Her Future Adoptive Family
Hailey, 15, decided to write a letter to her potential new family. If you have interest in meeting her, you will find Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange's contact information below.
Hi, My name is Hailey and I am a sociable, funny, cool, kind, sweet and outgoing person. I am someone who likes to stay on topic, listen to others, and am a good planner. I consider myself a brave person and a hard worker. I have dreams about my future. I'd like to open a restaurant one day and learn how to cook more.
I have several family members who I am close with including my aunt and grandmother. I am particularly close with my aunt who I speak with about funny things, my emotions and my hopes. Along with my many strengths I also have many talents and interests. I like to ride horses, play hockey, video games, and board games, and go swimming. I also like to cook and bake and draw anime.
I'm looking for a family that will love me and have fun with me! I would like to do many activities with my family including horseback riding, arts and crafts, movie nights, and cooking/baking. I am also learning to play the piano. I also would be a big help to my family by doing chores, playing with any siblings, and making everyone laugh. I would also love a visiting resource. I hope to speak with you soon!
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 www.mareinc.org. Start the process today and give a waiting child a permanent place to call home.
