Cole is a very bright teen boy who is polite, well-mannered and compassionate.

He can carry on conversations, shows that he is interested in getting to know people and maintains strong connections.

Cole loves to be active. He enjoys playing basketball and football, and is willing to try any new activity. He loves anything wrestling-related.

Cole is doing very well in his 8th-grade classes with some academic support in math and reading. He wants to move into a family setting and would like nothing more than to be adopted.

Freed for adoption, Cole would do well in most any family that could offer him one-on-one attention. He should be the only child in the home or in a home with much older children. He will need a family that will keep him connected with his two siblings who live in western Massachusetts. Families from New England states will be considered. 

Who Can Adopt

If you’re at least 18, have a stable source of income and have 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. As an adoptive parent, you won’t have to pay any fees. Adoption from foster care is completely free in Massachusetts.

The process to adopt a child from foster care includes training, interviews and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you. These steps will help match you with a child or sibling group that will be a good fit.

To learn more about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at (617) 964-6273 or visit Start the process today and give a waiting child a permanent place to call home.
