Yaveliy is a girl who loves to build with Legos, play basketball and watch movies. She has been described by others as possessing " a love of laugh", fun loving and always having her music by her side. Yaveliy may have a difficult time establishing close relationships with others because many people in her life have left. She is very close to her siblings especially her older sister who lives nearby. They contact with each other and also enjoy virtual calls with each other. 

She has been excited and an enthusiastic learner so far in the first couple of months of school.  Yaveliy performs very well in school with an educational plan in place to help her with emotional and social needs. She enjoys being involved in school activities and has received awards this past school year for her leadership skills and civic participation. 

While most children would rather receive toys or candy, Yaveliy cherishes a new book when she has earned a reward.

Yaveliy has a large number of siblings who all live in western MA with whom she will need to maintain contact. She would do best in a 2 parent family with younger children in the home. She thrives on one on one attention, love, structure and routine in her new home. 

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.
