Meet Bright Angel, a Child Waiting for a Forever Home
Angel is an 11-year-old boy of Hispanic descent with a contagious smile. He is very inquisitive and loves to laugh. Some of Angel’s favorite activities are reading, playing video games, riding his scooter and going to the playground. He also loves Disney and Pixar movies, especially “Cars.” Angel is a very bright child, with an excellent memory.
Angel attends a specialized classroom for children on the autism spectrum. The school has a focus on language and literacy development, and Angel is also able to receive Applied Behavior Analysis during school time. According to his foster mother, Angel loves to learn and does well in class. Both his teachers and foster mother have noted that Angel responds well to structure and that he can be very active.
Angel is legally freed for adoption and will do best with a family that is nurturing and patient. Angel has a lot of energy and an active family would be ideal for him. His social worker prefers Angel to be placed in a two-parent home either with no other children or with children who are older than him.
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.
To learn more about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange at 617-964-6273 or go to mareinc.org. The sooner you call, the sooner a waiting child will have “a permanent place to call HOME.”
