Wednesday’s Child: 12-Year-Old Zachary
BOSTON (CBS) – Zachary or Zach is a 12-year-old Caucasian boy who enjoys skateboarding, snowboarding, riding his bicycle, playing video games and watching movies.
In school, his favorite subjects are math and social studies. When he gets older, Zach is considering becoming a mechanic. Zach currently lives in a residential program, but is in need of a two-parent home where he would be the only or youngest child.
Legally free for adoption, Zach would very much like to be a part of selecting his adoptive family and wants his input to be heard. He says that he is open to “all kinds” of families.
Zach is in need of stability and security and would like to find a family he could trust and rely upon. Zachary would like to learn what being part of a healthy family is like and needs parents who will create structure for him and stick to it.
His early years have been chaotic, trying ones, and Zachary is now ready to be surrounded by a supportive family where his interests will be encouraged, his educational needs advocated for, and he can simply enjoy his remaining childhood years.
To learn more about Zach, 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.”
