Shey is a sweet, caring 14-year-old Latina girl. She is described as helpful, kind and supportive. At her residential program, she just earned the annual citizenship award for demonstrating a concern for social justice and for supporting her peers with humility, compassion and empathy.

Shey loves to keep active with sports, especially volleyball, and has expressed an interest in trying out for gymnastics. She has been told that she is an excellent artist, but her modesty will not allow her to admit it. In the fall, she will enter the eighth grade. Although she finds some of her classes challenging, she loves to read and write stories and in her journal.

Legally free for adoption, Shey would really like Spanish-speaking parents, but she would consider a single mom. Shey would also do well with or without other children in the home. Shey’s new family would need to engage in therapy with her prior to and after placement to help ensure the success of the placement.

Who can adopt?

Can you provide the guidance, love and stability that a child needs? If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income and 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.

The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you, and if so, to help connect you with a child or sibling group that your family will be a good match for.

To learn more about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange at 617-542-3678 or go to mareinc.org.
