BOSTON (CBS) – Matthew is a 9-year-old Hispanic boy who is legally free for adoption. He enjoys playing video games and playing outside. Matthew has an Individualized Education Plan that assists him with challenges in school. Over the past year, he has gone through a “total transformation” both academically and behaviorally, and is thriving. Matthew is also doing very well in his current foster home, where he lives with a single mom who has three daughters. He is good with animals and enjoys helping with the dogs in his foster home.

Matthew would do well in a family of any constellation, with or without other children. If the family has other children, Matthew should be the youngest child. Matthew’s future family should be open to maintaining contact with his birth siblings and potentially his birth mother. Matthew benefits from regular therapy, and would do best with a family who could support his continued involvement in this work.

To learn more about Matthew, 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.”
