*Ivy just turned 11 and was adopted internationally.
Ivy’s family says she is curious, watchful, outgoing, silly, and loves to chatter. She has good comprehension when she reads—which she does voraciously! It’s hard to find a book the girl hasn’t read! She has great recall and enjoys sharing the details of a story she’s recently read. She also likes to play outside, do arts and crafts, sew and cook. She has gone to several cooking camps and loves them! She likes to ride her bike, dance and sing to music, and play board and card games. She loves the colors purple and pink. Her adopted mom says she’s a girly-girl who loves to dress up in pretty clothes. Ivy is in the 4th grade in school and doing well. She gets mostly B’s. Reading is her favorite subject in school.
Second Chance is working with her adopted family to find a new family who has no other children under the age of 13 and no children with disabilities. Her family has raised her in a religious environment and feel that it would help for her to continue learning about God. If you fit the requirements and are interested in learning more about Ivy and our adoption process, please write back to us at [email protected] and ask for her full profile.
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. Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, or DE. If you have never had a homestudy before, we cannot help you adopt this child. But, we would love to share with you the process of starting a homestudy 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 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.
