Can I adopt?
If you are at least 18 years old, 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 together; experienced or not; tenants or homeowners; LGBTQ+ singles and couples. As an adoptive parent you do not have to pay any fees, adoption from a foster family is completely free in Massachusetts.
The process of 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 group of kids or siblings that your family is a good fit for.
For more information about adoption from foster homes, 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.
