*Lane was adopted 5 years ago in the US by a family who has a total of 10 children (5 bio, 5 adopted). He is 9 years old and in the third grade. Lane is a very affectionate child; his family reports that he seeks out affection and likes to ask for hugs. He will say “I love you” and mean it. He can be goofy and silly sometimes, but tends to be serious most of the time. He loves painting and coloring: art class is his favorite. He also enjoys music and piano. He is very quiet and calm and prefers activities like reading, watching TV, and playing board games. Lane gets along best with children older than he is, but he is kind to everyone. It is important to note that he is allergic to gluten and dairy.

We cannot place a Second Chance (SC) child into a home that already has children within 2 yrs of the SC child’s age. For Lane, this means no other children in the home between the ages of 7-11.
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, NY, MO, or DE.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
