March's Child: Meet Ezra
Ezra is a 13-year-old girl of Cape Verdean heritage. Ezra is usually laid back and quiet until you get her talking about her favorite topics: Monster High and the robotics club she belongs to at her Boys & Girls Club! Ezra enjoys reading, writing and drawing. She has a great imagination for writing her own stories and is an excellent writer. Those who know Ezra best say she loves to please others. She does well in school and has recently been on the honor roll.
Ezra is ready for adoption and will need to maintain monthly visits with her siblings whom she is unable to be placed with. Ezra expresses wanting a family with a mom therefore her social worker is honoring this wish and seeking any type of family with at least one female parent.
Can you provide the guidance, love and stability that a child needs? If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and 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.
The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you, and if so, to help connect you with a child or sibling group that your family will be a good match for.
