WESTFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – An adoption party in Westfield Sunday brought together foster children with couples who might one day become their adoptive parents.
A state agency brought them together at the Westfield Boys and Girls Club. These get-to-know one another parties have resulted in many of the foster children eventually being adopted.
Diana Vershon and her husband attended an adoption party two years ago, and they returned to adopt a second child.
Diana told 22News, “We adopted him last November and we had such a great experience. It’s a great way for us to start building our family.”
Many Western Massachusetts families have adopted more than one boy or girl as a result of the parties organized by the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange.
