Lovely is a teenager who lives up to her name, according to the counselors at her residence.

She is an independent, sweet and friendly girl with a great sense of humor. While it can take some time to get her to open up, once she is comfortable she enjoys her connections with others.

Lovely is described as a quiet girl with a "go-with-the-flow" attitude.

She has a passion for food and often jokes about her big appetite. She enjoys painting and loves to display her art. She gets along well with her peers and with the adults in her life.

Legally freed for adoption, Lovely would do well with a family of any makeup, with or without other children -- a patient and nurturing family that can take the time to build a trusting relationship.

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.
