BOSTON (CBS) – Jeffrey is a friendly and outgoing 11- year-old boy of Hispanic descent.

With a healthy sense of humor, Jeffrey likes making people laugh. He is curious and is interested in learning, as well as trying new activities. He is hoping to find a loving and supportive adoptive home where he feels like he belongs.

In his free time, Jeffrey loves playing video games and would like to join either a baseball or soccer team. He likes to draw, do arts and crafts and watch television and movies. Jeffrey also enjoys taking karate lessons. Jeffrey currently lives in a foster home where he is doing well and gets along with the other children in the home. Meeting with similar success in school, Jeffrey benefits from being a part of a therapeutic school setting.

WBZ-TV’s Jack Williams reports

Legally free for adoption, Jeffrey would do well in a family of any constellation, with or without other children. An active family that can work with Jeffrey on increasing his self-esteem would be ideal. Jeffrey enjoys contact with his siblings, which would need to continue after placement.

With the structure, stability, love and affection of a permanent family, Jeffrey will continue to triumph over the obstacles in his life and blossom.

To learn more about Jeffrey, and about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at 617-54-ADOPT (617-542-3678) or visit www.MAREinc.org. The sooner you call, the sooner a waiting child will have “a permanent place to call HOME.”
