*Grayson just turned 9 and was adopted domestically into a large family. He needs a smaller family where he can be the youngest and receive the extra attention he needs to succeed. If you have no other children under the age of 11 and time to spend one-on-one helping Grayson become his best, please write us back and ask for his “full profile” as well as our process for being preapproved for a Second Chance adoption.
Grayson’s family says he is active, outgoing, and affectionate. He likes to give hugs and high-fives! His favorite color is red, and he loves pizza and Nutella a LOT! He enjoys outdoor activities like playing, sports and especially riding his bike. Riding his bike around the neighborhood is a favorite—he much prefers being active over sedentary activities. He has participated in cross country in school and enjoyed it! He likes animals and is kind and careful with them. He really enjoys meeting new people and playing with friends. He has quite a few friends at school and in his neighborhood. He is well-liked in school by both peers and teachers and is regularly praised for his hard work. His family reports that they constantly hear from others what a positive attitude Grayson always has, and how he always has a smile on his face. He can be very kind and thoughtful—and loves to be helpful. He can be very compassionate toward others especially if someone gets hurt. His adopted mom says he loves a good laugh!
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster home study might not work. A 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, or DE.
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 qualifies 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.
