About Max: “Handsome 12-year-old Max was born with a low birth weight, but has no other special needs. He is all smiles, but a bit camera shy. He enjoys playing with the other children and he is described as a sweet and well-behaved boy. He does struggle a little academically. Max is a mild mannered and respectful kid who is waiting for a family in a province that makes the travel part of the process as easy and convenient as possible for an adoptive family.”
“Agency staff met Max in 2015 and he was also hosted in the US in the summer of 2016. Everyone adored him. Max did eventually find a family, but sadly, his family has fallen through to no fault of his own and he is waiting yet again. It is hard to understand why Max has waited all these years, especially when you look at the precious photos of him from a younger age when his file was first prepared. Max has seen many friends leave to go with their forever families. He understands what adoption means and wants a family of his own. We know there has to be a family out there for Max!” – Madison Adoption Associates
Grants Available: There is a $5,000 Bright Futures agency grant for Max’s adoption with MAA.
