He’s a 13-year-old boy that was adopted through foster care. He is in need of a new home. He has not developed a healthy relationship with his parents or sister and has become a safety risk. Austin is the oldest of 5 children. He would benefit from a smaller household. We are looking for a single parent or two parent household (heterosexual and LGBTQ families are welcomed to inquire). Austin would benefit from being the youngest or only child in his new family. Families with a younger child will be considered on a case by case basis. He has been exposed to the Christian faith and the family would prefer a Christian family but they are open to all types of religions or non-religious families. There is no preference as to the location, employment or age of the new adoptive parent(s).
Austin is described as charming. He frequently gets reports from others outside of his home, how wonderful he is. Austin is said to be a natural leader. He is social and does not have trouble making friends. He is happy spending time with others. Austin does well in school. He is an intelligent child that has no problems getting A’s and B’s. Austin is an active boy. He likes playing basketball and recently spoke of wanting to be a pro baseball player. He likes playing with legos and reading books.
Austin does well in structured environments and will need a home with consistent love and boundaries. He will need a family that can support him as he continues to process past trauma he has experienced.

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, or DE. If you live in WI, there are a few steps that have to be followed, but it is possible to adopt from there. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption.
If we have home study ready families 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 same-sex 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. There are grants out there to help fund your adoption (please request that information.) This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
