He is a 13-year-old boy that was adopted internationally from a South American country. He is in need of a new home. David is the oldest of 5 children (two biological and two adopted) Attachment has been one huge issue for him in his current family.
David is described as polite and silly. He likes having fun, joking and playing with other people. He is active outdoors and likes to rollerblade, ride bikes/scooters etc. He is a rule follower. He does well with a simple “action equals reward” formula. David is homeschooled and a quick learner. He learned English within a few months of being in the United States. He does not always enjoy school but is compliant with doing work and finishing assignments. He is motivated and does his work well. David has an engineering and artistic mind and as a result, he does well in Math. He also enjoys science, designing and hands-on activities. David is said to be in excellent health. He has no known allergies or physical disabilities.
We are looking for a single or two parent household with no children or older siblings. David would benefit from being the youngest in his family. The family would prefer a Christian family because that is what he’s been exposed to but they are open to other families as well. They have no preference on the employment or age of the prospective adoptive family. David loves exploring. He is not hyper but definitely enjoys being busy. The family believes an adventurous, active family would be a great fit for him.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like a more detailed profile on David. He’s a great kid that could use a family to help him with his unresolved trauma.
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, FL or DE. If you live in WI, we can do placements but they have a few requirements that include a few visits with the child. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption.
If you haven’t started your home study, please contact us for information on how to begin one. However, if we have home study ready families for this child, they will be considered first. If you are willing to take a child between the ages of 8 and 15, we suggest you begin the home study process as soon as possible so you can be considered for future/other children.
We know that adopting a child over the age of 8 can be difficult, but we feel confident that there are parents of all types, single men and women, traditional couples and same-sex couples, who would love to add them to their family.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated with them. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit. There are also grants out there that can help fund your adoption (please request information).
