This child has been waiting in our program for several months and we have some great new updates on him! If you’ve asked for his info before, don’t let that stop you from requesting again to read on his improvements over the past few months. He is working hard on being his best self!
*Jacobi is 6 years old and was adopted internationally when he was 1.5 years old. He has not attached to anyone in his adoptive family and they feel that he would do much better in a different home with no other siblings close to his age.
Jacobi loves food and cooking. He very much enjoys music and dancing (nothing else makes him happier!) He likes completing puzzles, drawing, and airplanes and flying. On a good day, he can be a very goofy little boy with an outgoing joyful spirit. He is artistic with his body and would like to participate in ballet and dance classes. He likes anything Disney, especially if it has music involved like Frozen and Moana. In fact, he enjoys watching and listening to most musicals. Jacobi can be helpful around the house. He currently knows the alphabet, can recognize letters, can count to 20, but cannot do basic addition. His adopted mom says he’s very smart but has struggled behaviorally both in homeschool and public school and has not advanced much.

Jacobi can be charming and prefers things to be clean and neat. He keeps his things well organized. When he draws things he always adds in neat little details that others would overlook.
If you have no other children under age 9 and you’d like to know more about Jacobi and our process of being preapproved for his adoption, please write to us at [email protected] and ask for his “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 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.
