Ian is a 12-year-old boy who was adopted through foster care. In the time that Ian lived in his adoptive home, he has developed behaviors that have caused a huge strain on his family relationships. These behaviors are only experienced at home. Ian receives positive reports from school and other public places. For those of you who follow Kidteen know that it’s not uncommon for children in our program to be very pleasant in public and leave their difficult behaviors for home and family. The family has partnered with our program to try and find him a home where he’ll be successful and thrive.
We are looking for a traditional two-parent or single-parent home. Ian would do best as the only child or youngest. Families with other/younger children will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The family prefers a Christian family but is open to non-Christian or non-religious families. There is no requirement on location but the family prefers that Ian have a fresh start outside of their current state. There is no preference for employment or age of the new adoptive parent(s). The family believes that Ian would do best in an athletic family that has space outside for him to run around.
Ian excels at school and enjoys learning. He has great imaginative play and is interested in “how” things work and “why” they happen. Ian is described as smart, athletic and creative. Ian likes to do Rubix cube, and play board games, like chess or Monopoly. He enjoys playing sports. Basketball and soccer are his favorites. He would love to pursue playing competitive soccer. Ian likes animals and helping to care for them. He is great around younger children and likes playing with them. Ian is an affectionate child and is happy to give hugs.

This is a private adoption, so a state or foster care home study might not work. 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 cannot place this child in CT, MA, NY, or DE. If you live in WI, a few steps must 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.
