*Cece is 9 years old and this is her second time in the Second Chance program. She was adopted last year (2019) by a family with one older child. This placement has not worked out, due to competition between the children for the parents’ attention. We agree with her adopted parents that CeCe will likely thrive in a family environment where there are no other children under age 15 for her to compete with for the attention she deserves (and missed out on when she was younger). They are partnering with Second Chance to find a new adoptive family for CeCe who has a current (or easily updated) homestudy and no other children under age 15. CeCe really needs a home with no competition from other children. If you fit what we’re looking for, please write us for her full profile to learn more about CeCE and the preapproval process for a Second Chance adoption. Please write to us at [email protected] and request CeCe’s ‘full profile.’
CeCe enjoys arts and crafts, building with various materials and playing outside. She likes to swim and ride her bike! She recently started gymnastics and is also interested in soccer. She likes to be active. Her adoptive parents say she has a great memory and is very creative – she especially enjoys creative activities that involve Mom. She loves to read and reads very quickly – her favorite books include lots of adventures and fun – she does not like anything that is “scary,” thought.
Though CeCe is extremely active, she does not like being called a tomboy; she loves jewelry, lip gloss, and getting dressed up. She has become an advocate for herself in the area of healthy food and loves all sorts of foods – anything but mushrooms. Her favorite part about meals is being together. She loves family meal times and is learning how to have conversations that involve everyone at the table. While she is independent with tasks, her deepest desire is for someone to spend time doing the arts and crafts with her
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, or DE. She also cannot be placed into WA state. 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 may qualify 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.
