*Anna is 6 years old and was adopted internationally. The extent of her needs was not clearly disclosed to the family prior to traveling to bring her home. We’ve sadly worked with many families who found themselves in this same situation—knowing at once that they were not equipped to handle the child’s needs but not wanting to leave her at the orphanage and travel home without her. So, they decided to bring her home and try to make things work. Over the past three years they have attempted to create a sustainable situation for their family including helping Anna to thrive. It has not been successful. They are hoping to find an adoptive family who can provide for Anna in all the ways they cannot. They are willing to consider a single parent with a strong support system or a traditional two-parent family of any religious background to adopt Anna. Second Chance requires that every family who adopted from us have a current private homestudy. We can sometimes work with you if your home study needs updating (as long as it can be done in less than 3 weeks). If you are interested in adopting this child, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and request her full profile.
Anna likes to swing, listen to music, bang on her music boards, sit in the sun, spin around, play with others’ hands, go on walks in her stroller, put her hands under the faucet in the bath, put her hands in her mouth, make noises and pet dogs with assistance. She is an easy-going child, resilient and likes everyone. She is happy to play by herself and adjusts easily to new schedules. She likes everyone and is a primarily happy child. She attaches easily to people and is always open to giving a comforting, firm and prolonged hug. Anna loves music boards that light up, and is attracted to items that are red in color. She loves to be hugged and given individual attention. She is unable to assist in any of her own care and will be a lifetime care child.

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, NY, WI or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize this adoption. If you live in WI or FL, please let us know, as the adoption process may be longer and a bit more expensive than what is listed in our paperwork. 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! If you are a U.S. citizen living overseas, we may be able to work with you depending on a few details.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. 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
