*Caleb just turned 8 at the end of September and was adopted domestically. Second Chance has partnered with Caleb’s parents to find a family who has no other children under age 12, either a traditional married couple or single mom or dad with a good support system. Please write to us to ask for additional information on him [email protected]
Caleb’s adopted parents report that he is “obedient, helpful and polite”. When we asked them to share some of his good qualities they said, “There are too many to list!” He is neat and clean. He is active but not hyper. He is smart and creative and everyone loves him. He enjoys the outdoors, especially things in nature. He loves to be assigned complicated chores (like cleaning out the pool filter), and prides himself on doing an excellent job. He anticipates other’s needs and is always there to lend a helping hand. He is athletic and would excel at single-player sports like golf, swimming or gymnastics.
Caleb loves all sorts of food and eats well without problems. He has no allergies.
Caleb is in the 2nd grade and is homeschooled. He loves school and is smart and self-directed. His favorite subject is reading—he’s reading Little House on the Prairie books right now. They are a bit above his grade level but he enjoys a challenge. He is self-motivated and gets himself up at 7am, showers and brushes teeth and is ready for the day. He is working on a self-paced DVD school program and is almost done with 2nd grade spelling already. He is ahead in all subjects and, did we mention he LOVES school?!
Caleb does not have rages or temper tantrums. He’s an easy-going, even tempered 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, or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state for finalization of 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 so there will be costs associated. This adoption qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credits.

*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.
