Daisy – Placed
*Daisy is turning 8 years old soon. She was adopted internationally.
Daisy has a wonderful sense of humor and is very witty and funny. She has natural leadership ability and likes to lead her friends in whatever they’re doing. She’s taken a year of ballet and enjoys teaching her friends what she’s learned at dance class and then putting on little shows for others. She also uses her strong influencing skills at school and is always using her vivid imagination to come up with fun games and play for her and her friends. She enjoys art and makes pictures to give to others. She loves the family puppy and is helpful in taking him out to potty and cleaning up any messes he makes in the house. She enjoys swimming and playing outside. She also likes to help around the house. Daisy likes to feel beautiful and thinks that everyone she meets is also beautiful. She presents as a happy, smiling, full of energy little girl with a positive outlook on life. She shows empathy toward others and is always concerned if she sees someone hurting. Her adopted mom thinks it builds up Daisy’s self-worth to help with tasks around the home—she loves to be involved and help out.
Daisy’s family says she’s a ‘foodie’. She has a good adventurous appetite and will try out anything. Their family is not vegetarian so she enjoys steak, sushi, chicken, hot dogs, hamburgers, Ethiopian food—you name it, she enjoys it!
She is making good progress in this school and is in the 1st grade. Daisy LOVES school and is so excited to learn. This school is a ‘whole being’ school that focuses on social, psychological, emotional and academic progress. Behaviorally, she needs occasional reminders to ‘not interrupt’ and to ‘focus on her work’. Daisy enjoys school so much she wants to be a teacher
Second Chance is working with Daisy’s parents to find a new adoptive family with no other children under age 10 and a current home study (or one that can be easily updated). They are hoping that this new family will be Christian and continue to talk to Daisy about God and His plan for her life. If this fits you and you’d like to know more about Daisy and our adoption process, please write to [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 so there are 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.
