*Eric is 5 years old and was adopted from US foster care. He is in need of a different adoptive family to continue the hard work his first family has put in. We are looking for a traditional (mom/dad) two parent adoptive home, or a single dad, for Eric who has a current (or easily updated) homestudy with no other children under the age of 8 or 9. Any older children in the home need to have strong personalities who will not be easily upset or bullied by a strong-personality younger brother like Eric. We do not feel that a single mom would be in Eric’s best interests as he prefers the company of his adopted dad and tends to listen better when he knows there is a male authority figure. If you fit this profile, please write to us and request his full profile. We’d like to share more of the reasons why this little boy needs a different adoptive home and what our requirements are for being preapproved for a Second Chance adoption. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Eric’s adopted family tells us he has a bright and bubbly personality. He has an infectious giggle and a great sense of humor. He is social, intelligent, and quick-witted. He loves anything to do with sports, hiking, and playing outside. He just learned how to ride a bike and enjoys that. He loves to find sticks on hikes and is constantly on the search for nature treasures. He loves pretend play. He enjoys being on the move, but likes quiet peaceful independent play at home also. His favorite movies are The Grinch, Home Alone and Harry Potter. He is talented in art and loves drawing and writing letters and numbers. Eric is lactose-intolerant, but enjoys all kinds of foods such as peanut butter toast, peanut butter and honey sandwiches, chocolate chip cookies, tacos, spaghetti, chili, hot dogs and soup. Eric is pretty independent with self-care—he can dress and undress himself (including buttons and zippers), put on his own coat and shoes, and can wash hands by himself. He is a kind, sweet and social boy. He is gentle and kind to animals (and bugs too…see the video link!) https://youtu.be/7bV9DwlpR6U
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 You will need to have a current home study for this adoption (or be able to update your outdated or international study quickly).
Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, NY, 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! We are only able to work with US citizens living abroad if they are active duty military.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.

*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. If you choose to leave a negative comment or share this post with the intent to slander this child, his need for a different adoptive home or anyone else involved in this situation, you will be permanently blocked from this webpage. Please choose kindness.
