SUNDAY’S CHILD

Sunday’s Child is Cassy, 15, who dreams of being an OB-GYN

Casondra, who also goes by Cassy, loves to tell jokes and make everyone laugh. She is 15 and brims with dynamic interests such as singing, dancing, athletics, and watching wrestling on TV. She describes herself as a happy, silly, and proud girl who is fun to be around.

Cassy may be shy on first meeting, but she is outgoing and not afraid to let you know what is on her mind. She has done a great job making new friends in school. She likes being around younger children, too, and this year became a certified baby sitter.

In school, Cassy’s favorite subject is math. She has struggled academically and earned inconsistent grades, which her teachers believe is a reflection of her lack of motivation rather than her abilities. Cassy is bright and needs someone to believe in her and encourage her to reach her full potential. Although it may take some time for Cassy to let down her guard, she is capable of forming meaningful relationships.

Cassy has set many goals for herself, among them becoming an OB-GYN. She believes being adopted may help her fulfill her dreams. She is eager to find a family who enjoy being active and going places, who have a sense of humor, who can provide her with safety, stability, and unconditional love.

When asked what she would bring to a family, Cassy said “happiness.’’

Who can adopt?

Can you provide the guidance, love, and stability a child needs? If you are at least 18, have a stable source of income and room in your heart, you may be a perfect match for a waiting child. Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; gay or lesbian singles or 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 will be a good match. Making a match that will be ‘‘for keeps’’ can take a year or longer.

To learn more about Cassy, and about adoption from foster care, call the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE) at 617-54-ADOPT (617-542-3678) or visit www
