*Ivan is 5 years old, turning 6 this winter and was adopted domestically. Ivan needs to be readopted into a home without younger children to compete with for the individual attention he needs. We are looking for an adoptive home with no other children under age 8 and a current homestudy (or one that can be easily updated) to adopt Ivan. Please write to us for his ‘full profile’ if you’d like more info on him and our process of being preapproved for a Second Chance adoption. Please write to [email protected] .
Ivan loves to play inside or outside and is all boy. He enjoys doing crafts and reading, but most of the time he would prefer activities that burn lots of energy. Ivan loves to go to the playground to run and slide but is afraid to swing very high. He has a funny sense of humor and enjoys attempting to tell jokes or pull pranks. As you can see in his photo, he’s always smiling and laughing. His favorite color is green and he loves construction vehicles more than all his other toys. He is attached to a stuffed mouse that he requested for Christmas. He also likes dinosaurs. Ivan has a 2-wheel bike with training wheels, but it scares him if it tips at all, so it may be a while before he can ride confidently. He loves being read to—Thomas the Train is one of his favorites, as well as rhyming books like Dr. Seuss or other word-pattern books.
Ivan has a positive attitude most of the time and enjoys cuddling up with his person with a picture book. He makes friends easily and plays well with other kids.

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, WI or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize this 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! We are only able to work with US citizens living abroad if they are active duty military.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.

*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.
