Jessie is 6 years old and was adopted from US foster care. Jessie lived with a foster family for her first 3 years before being adopted. After her adoption, weekly visits with the foster family continued (as per the family’s therapist) and as a result, Jessie has never formed a secure attachment to this family. They are hoping to find a new adoptive home for her where she can be the youngest child by at least 2 years and soak up all the attention she has missed out on these past few years because of the younger children in her home. We are willing to consider a family who has a current private homestudy (or one that can be quickly updated), who has no other children under age 9. We will consider 2 parent homes as well as a single mom. If you fit what we’re looking for, please write us for her ‘full profile’ if you’d like to know more about Jessie and the process of being preapproved for a Second Chance adoption. Please write to [email protected] .
Jessie is a sweet, energetic, enthusiastic little girl. She gets excited about almost anything and everything she gets to do. She is a fun kid—the life of the party! People seem to enjoy this about her, as it can be infectious. She loves to be silly and laugh and joke around. Jessie has a great imagination and is currently enjoying creative writing and writing her own “chapter books,” along with her love for reading chapter books. She reads voraciously and they have trouble finding age-appropriate material for her anymore! She loves all kinds of arts and crafts. Jessie enjoys using her school iPad and watching anything on the TV. Jessie loves to play chess, cards and board games. She is also a foodie and enjoys going out to restaurants and trying all sorts of new foods. She also likes to help cook and bake in the kitchen and prepare her own meals when possible. Jessie loves to be a helper. She helps vacuum with a dust buster after meals, sort laundry, take out the trash, helps her little brothers get dressed, etc. She very much enjoys being included and feeling like she is helping out. Jessie is an affectionate child who enjoys sitting on laps and hugs.
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 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 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.
