Meet Eva and William!
William (12) and Eva (11) are siblings adopted internationally. Both children developed a close bonded relationship with their adopted parents that has been severely disrupted by the new adoption of a sibling group of 4 last summer (2019). We are hoping to find a family who would like to adopt both children, but they may also be placed separately into new adoptive families. Second Chance is partnering with William and Eva’s family to find a small family who has no other children between age 7-15 for the children. Please write to [email protected] and request the children’s full profiles to learn more about why they are in need of a different adoptive placement.
Eva loves social outings and activities and knows what type of dress is appropriate for different occasions. She has participated in cultural dance classes, and travelled in the US, Canada and Mexico. She is a multi-cultural child who understands and enjoys cultures and cuisines of other places. She is charming, sweet and presents well. She has very good manners—sitting up straight, keeping her back straight and knees together. She enjoys school, summer camps, watching movies with someone, private lessons (dancing and language) and going for walks. She loves fashion, animals (she would LOVE to have a dog!), small children, music, coloring and dancing. She is trilingual speaking her native tongue as well as English and French. Eva is talkative and affectionate.
William’s family describes him as a positive, socially engaged, happy, talkative child who enjoys sports, academics, church and family. He does best with a structured life, but can also be lazy on the weekends and is always up for a road trip! He enjoys cultural dancing lessons. William is fascinated by language and speaks 3 fluently (his native tongue as well as English and French) and has studied 3 more languages. His favorite movies are The Karate Kid and Harry Potter. He enjoys travel, art, and summer camp. He is meticulous with his belongings and his folded clothing and made bed look like he was in the military! His family feels that he is University-bound and hopes that his new adoptive family will continue to encourage his love of learning.
Eva and William attend a French Catholic private school. In the adoptive home, they speak primarily English, but in school for 30 hours a week, only French is spoken. They have been taught British table manners: sit up straight, napkin in the lap, fork in left hand, knife in right.
Both children do best with structure and routine rather than laid back. But they are also comfortable with sleeping in on the weekends and relaxed Sundays.
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.
