*Ethan is 7 and was adopted internationally. Ethan has medical needs that are beyond the ability of his adopted family. We are hoping to find a homestudy ready family with no other children under age 9 to adopt Ethan. We will consider all kinds of families. If this fits your family and you’re interested in adopting Ethan, please write to us for his full profile. We would love to share more about this little boy and why he needs a new adoptive home. Please write to us at [email protected]

Ethan’s adopted mom told us, “Ethan is the most beautiful child, when he wants to snuggle and love you it is like the sun is shining on you. His laugh is so sweet and contagious when he laughs everyone wants to laugh”. Ethan likes the feel of skin and wants to rub your arm or hand with his. He enjoys looking at books and will do it for hours with you. He loves puzzles and is really good at them. He likes to carry his stuffed wolf around with him. He loves going to the park and would swing all day if allowed. He loves to go on bike rides with the family and laughs when the wind blows on his face. He loves to go swimming and could spend hours in the pool.
Ethan is non-verbal but has excellent receptive language skills. He is in the first grade in a life-skills class and is meeting his goals.
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 or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state for finalization of the 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 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.
