Legally freed for adoption, their social worker is open to exploring single or two parent families who feel they can help the children remain connected to family members that are important to them. It would be reasonable to expect the children would need to return a few times a year to Massachusetts if matched out of state. Their social worker is seeking a family where the siblings would be the only children or the youngest children.
