Jesse was adopted as a youngster from Africa. He is now 9. When he came into the orphanage, he was the youngest of 7 birth children in his family. After he was adopted, he became the oldest child in the home, with 2 younger siblings who were biological children of the adoptive family. So essentially Jesse went from being the baby of a large family to being the oldest brother in his new family. He has not done well with this change and his family feels that he would heal best if he had a new adoption into a situation where he was the youngest again.
Jesse is not on any medication. We have a very good psychological profile for him that we will send to interested families.
He is a good sleeper but struggles with sharing a room with a 5 year old brother. It would be nice for Jesse to have his own room.
He has a strong sense of justice and fairness and is described as being the school policeman. He also always wants things to be fair and even among his siblings and him.
Jesse needs a family who would be ok letting him keep contact with his grandparents whom he loves and who love him.
Jesse likes sports and loves to read. He often “escapes” by burying himself into a book. Jesse has a good memory; he remembers facts and loves to talk about them.
It is hoped that the new family will have resources for counseling and/or therapy.

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 NY, CT, MA, NV, ND or DE.
Adoption is a legal process so there are costs for his adoption. For further information, please email us at [email protected].
