Can I adopt?
If you’re at least 18 years old, have a steady source of income, and have room in your heart, you might be the perfect match for adopting an expectant child. Adoptive parents can be single, married or in a couple; experienced or not; tenants or owners; LGBTQ+ singles and couples.
As an adoptive parent, you won’t have to pay any fees, foster adoption is completely free in Massachusetts.
The process of adopting a foster child includes training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you. These steps will help you pair up with a child or group of siblings that your family will fit in well with.
