Gabby is an 11-year-old girl that was adopted through foster care when she was younger. Gabby resents her adoptive parents and has been very unhappy in her current home. She doesn’t respect their authority and displays poor behaviors around them, which isn’t typically seen anywhere else. After research, Gabby’s parents have learned that children with similar conditions/behaviors as Gabby can bond much better in a second home. They would love to give her the opportunity to bond in a loving family environment.
We are looking for a two-parent or single-parent household with a strong support network. Both heterosexual and LBGTQ+ couples and individuals are invited to inquire. Gabby would do best as the youngest or only child in a new family. She has poor sibling relationships and her family believes she might do best with more time and attention. Families with other or younger children, however, will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Gabby does well with other children and is said to be very nurturing in those instances. It is possible that she could do well given a fresh start with siblings that aren’t triggering to her. Gabby’s parents believe that she would benefit from having at least one black parent but this is not a requirement. The family prefers a Christian home but they are open to all religions and non-religious homes. There is no preference on age, location or employment of the new adoptive parent(s). The family would like for the new family to be knowledgeable in attachment and to be able to provide her with a safe, stable and loving home.
Gabby is an extremely social girl. She is well-liked by peers and teachers. She absolutely loves young children and babies. She is engaging and enjoys getting down on their level to play. Gabby loves to read, dance and listen to music. Gabby’s parents report that she is musically talented and has good rhythm. She enjoys singing songs with one of her family members who is a musician. She loves Mo-Town music, Ray Charles and James Brown.
Gabby is described as having a great sense of humor. She is a comedian and likes to make people laugh. She’s a creative girl who likes art and drawing. Gabby loves all things seafood and spicy. She enjoys baking and hopes to open her own bakery someday.
Gabby would benefit from continued therapeutic support in a new home. She could use continued support with emotional regulation and self-worth.

This is a private adoption, so a state or foster care home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. You will need a current, updated or new home study for this adoption.
Due to state laws, we are unable to place this child in CT, MA, NY, or DE. If you live in WI, there are a few steps that have to be followed, but it is possible to adopt from there. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption. We have made recent connections in FL that could potentially make it possible to place in that state. Please contact us for more information.
If we have home study ready families for this child, we will consider them first. Therefore, if you are willing to take a child between the ages of 9 and 15, we suggest you begin the process as soon as possible.
We know that adopting a child over the age of 9 could be difficult, but we feel confident that there are parents of all types out there who love kids and would love to add them to their families.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated with them. There are grants out there to help fund your adoption (please request that information.) This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
