READING, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Jordan’s Furniture in Reading held an adoption party Sunday. A large number of children and potential parents went to the before hours, invite-only event.
The event included games, ice cream, and a petting zoo. It was presented along with the Massachusetts Adoption Resource Exchange (MARE).
Parents Robert and Jim adopted two boys a few years ago.
“We just make that connection. We met both our boys at adoption parties, especially our first boy. And he was building these marshmallow Lego sticks together. And we just sat down next to him, started interacting with him, and it was just a connection. We just knew,” Jim said.
