*Jace just turned 9 in September (2018) and was adopted internationally this past March (2018). He can be adopted by a family with younger and/or older children.
Jace’s family says he’s very easy going and enjoys being around people. He is not shy and is willing to try new things. He loves to be praised for his accomplishments. He enjoys learning to build things and going to see new places. He giggles easily. He prefers a predictable routine so he can know what’s coming next and prepare himself for how to do the expected things. He likes to color, ride his bike (without training wheels!) and play outside. He has a great throwing arm and likes sports. He is starting to show an interest in building with Legos. Jace is affectionate and eager to please. He prefers company to being alone.
Jace sleeps soundly through the night and is always dry. He is sweet and kind to pets (both cats and dogs).
Jace is in the 3rd grade and is slowly making gains considering he’s been in the US for less than a year. He is getting extra help with language in school.
Jace was born with transposition of the great arteries in his heart and had a successful surgery while he was quite young. He is a strong and healthy little boy who is not expected to have any more surgeries.
If you have a current or easily updated home study, and only 1 or two children younger than Jace (older children are fine too!), and are interested in adopting Jace, please write us back at [email protected] and ask for his ‘full profile’. We’ll gladly send you his documents as well as our process of being preapprove for a Second Chance adoption. Write to us!

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, 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!
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.
