Meet Allie our newest RAD Teen client. She’s a young girl we call “Allie” because we need to keep her name private. She is 13-years-old.
We are looking for a home study ready (or one that can be quickly updated) single black mom with no other children in the home.
The family doesn’t have any preferences for religion, age, location or employment.
Allie was adopted from Uganda when she was 7. She was placed with another family that did not finalize her adoption and she was returned to the previous family. She gets jealous of any other child in the family.
Allie is in need of a new adoptive home. The family tells us that she is intelligent and does well in school, especially English Language Arts and Literacy, but doesn’t do as well in Math, but is getting better. She hasn’t needed an IEP.
Allie loves to read. She wants to publish a book in the future. She enjoys drawing and likes to illustrate the books she’s written. She loves to create jewelry, crafts, crochet and any hands-on projects. She excels in short distance running. She enjoys singing. She loves dogs, cats and hamsters. (She would love to have a pet of her own.)
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster care home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. You will need a current, updated or new home study for this adoption.
Due to state laws, we are unable to place this child in CT, MA, NY, FL, DE or WI. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption. If you haven’t started your home study, please contact us for information on how to begin one. However, if we have home study ready family for this child, we will consider them first. Therefore, if you are willing to take a child between the ages of 9 and 15, we suggest you begin the process as soon as possible.
We know that adopting a child over the age of 9 is going to be difficult, but we feel confident that there are parents of all types, single men and women, traditional couples and double dads or two mom couples out there who love kids and would love to add them to their families.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated with them. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
