Angie – Placed
*Angie turned 9 recently and was adopted privately at age 4. Because her bio mom surrendered her in an attorney’s office directly to her adopted family, she harbors a lot of anger toward them for ‘stealing’ her from her mom. They have tried for the past 5 years to work through this, but Angie is unable to move past these feelings. They are desperate to find her a home where she can be a happy, healthy and connected little girl. Her adopted parents are working with Second Chance to find a new adoptive family for Angie who has a current (or easily updated) homestudy and no other children in the home under age 11. Please write to [email protected] .
Angie enjoys art—mostly drawing and coloring—we’ve included a bit of her art in this profile for you to see. She likes to roller skate and swing on the swing set. She is a charming entertainer who likes to be center stage—playing dress up, dancing and acting. She is a girlie-girl who likes to have her hair and nails done and always wears a bow in her hair. Her favorite singer is a Christian singer named Jamie Grace. She likes to play imaginary house with doll babies. She likes to have one-on-one attention where she can just be chatty and have an adult to listen to her. Her adopted dad say she can be a goof-ball, loud and outgoing. She (like most kids) loves junk food! She also likes to read. Her adopted parents say Angie is quite articulate for her age.
Angie is in the 3rd grade and is homeschooled. Academically she is on grade-level for Language arts, and reading and comprehension. She values education and works hard because she wants to get a good job when she’s older and she knows she needs an education. She reads at grade level and has beautiful cursive handwriting.
Angie has no food allergies or special diet restrictions.
Our only requirement for her adoption is that the new family have no other children under age 11 in the home. They will also (as for all of our adoptions) need to have a current homestudy or one that can be easily updated. If this fits your family and you’d like to know more about Angie and our adoption process, please write back to us at [email protected] and ask for her ‘full profile’.
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. You will
need to have a current, or easily-updated home study for this adoption. Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize this adoption. If you have never had a home study before, we cannot help you adopt this child. But we would love to share with you the process of starting a home study so you could be approved for a child in the near future. Please write to us and ask us how to get started!
Adoption is a legal process there will be costs involved. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.

*To protect the privacy of our waiting children and their families, Second Chance does not share real names for our waiting children on the Internet. It is our policy to only share a snippet of a waiting child’s details as well as the type of adoptive family we are looking for. If you fit the POSTED REQUIREMENTS, are home study ready (or can be soon!), and interested in adding this child to your family, please write to us for an honest, in-depth profile on the child including medical, educational, and behavioral information and learn the full story of why this child needs a secondary adoption. Our program social worker and program director have worked together with the child’s family to carefully set the requirements for the new family. These requirements are not negotiable, so please honor the needs of this child by not asking us to bend them for you.
