Families Waiting to Adopt

If you choose to make a plan for adoption, Wide Horizons For Children can help place your child in a loving home. We work with adoptive families who are well prepared to offer loving homes to children from diverse ethnic and religious backgrounds. We also help place children who have various health and medical issues. Our thorough screening process ensures that your child will have a loving, secure family.

Finding the most appropriate home for your child is a responsibility shared by you and Wide Horizons For Children. In choosing a family, it is most helpful for us to understand what is most important to you as a parent as you consider placing your child for adoption.

You may find that you have stronger preferences about some things than others. You may also find that your preferences will change over time, as your decision becomes a reality. It is also possible that certain things will not matter to you at all. Our Placement Planning Priorities Worksheet is designed to help you identify those things. While we can't guarantee the availability of a family that will meet all of your criteria, it is important that we identify a family that allows you to feel secure in your decision.

 

Chris and Jodi

Chris and Jodi

Hello... We are Chris and Jodi. The story of us began nearly five years ago with a simple “wink” on the modern sensation known as Match.com. What ensued was a four-hour chat session that led to our engagement two years later and a marriage between two best friends. We were married at a beautiful vineyard on the most gorgeous day one could wish for, surrounded by our family and friends.Our relationship has been a true joy and our friendship and love for one another grows every day. Jodi is the creative one and Chris is the outgoing one. While there are many things that we have in common, we also feel blessed to have diverse interests that compliment one another and have encouraged each of us to venture out of our comfort zones. Our first priority is spending time with our families, especially our nieces and nephews. Some of the other things we enjoy most are attending sporting events, cooking together, dining out, kayaking, listening to live music, taking day trips and vacationing.

Rebecca

Rebecca
Hi There! I’m Rebecca. I’m a single woman in my 40s, living in a small beach town, after 20 years in the city. I’ve wanted to be a mother since I was a child, but was never fortunate enough to find a husband to settle down with before it became clear that I couldn’t have children of my own. The blessing of adopting a child is something that I truly hope for. I know that considering adoption is not easy. Although I’m single, I’m able (and totally excited!) to be a stay at home mom. I’m creative, musical, thoughtful, and kind. I look forward to using those skills to create a happy, loving, safe home (with lots of laughter!) for a child.

Xavier and Nuria

Xavi and Nuria

We are Nuria and Xavier from Boston. We just celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary and we are very fortune to have a fantastic marriage! We are parents of a beautiful and healthy son, Alex. We are excited to become parents again through adoption. We are devoted to raising our children in a loving and supportive environment with the best possible chances for successful adulthood. Our town was rated in 2010 as the number one community in the Boston area to raise children. We love to live in America and we give thanks to God for the opportunities this country has given us. We are also proud of being Europeans. Alex is both an American and European citizen; the new baby will have dual citizenship also. We want our kids to live and grow in the U.S. while being exposed to European culture. We spend time every year in Europe and we will continue to be a multilingual family so our kids can be fluent in different languages. We want our children to become global citizens and to be comfortable growing in the larger World. We can imagine that if you were to make an adoption plan, your overwhelming concern would be that your baby could have a fantastic family to grow up with. We know we can be that family. We are eager to welcome a precious new child into our arms, hearts, and home.

Chris and Heather

Heather and Chris

It is courageous and loving to make an adoption plan for your child, and we are humbled to think that someone might choose us to raise their baby. We are eager to have a family and share our lives with children, to love and support them, and to have a lot of fun with them! We’re excited to witness their curiosity about the world around them, and to help them learn to be kind and compassionate people. Our children will be raised in a house filled with love and delicious, home-cooked food. They will also be raised goofing around outside -- playing games, riding bikes, swimming in the lake, sailing, or skiing. At night, our mellow dog Fred and sweet cat Ginger will snuggle up in bed to keep everyone cozy. We will share the story of our beginning together with openness and warmth. Our extended family will welcome our children with endless love, knitted blankets, and six cousins to play with. When our children come home, Heather will be a full-time mother, and Chris will continue to teach math and coach biking and skiing at the high school where we have both taught.
