*Josie is 10 years old and was adopted domestically. She has not attached well to her adoptive family and they are working with Second Chance to find a better fitting home for her. We are looking for a Christian (Bible-believing, church attending) family with no other children under age 13 to adopt Josie. No LDS families please. Josie enjoys attending Awana and learning about Jesus. Second Chance requires that an adoptive family have a current homestudy (or one that can be quickly updated). If your family fits these requirements and you’d like to know more about Josie and the adoption process, please write to us for her full information. We have lots of good information to share with you. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Josie loves animals and is very caring with her pets. She loves music and takes choir and music class. She would like to be a music teacher and/or join the Air Force when she grows up. Her adopted dad calls her a ‘song-stealer’, if you’re humming something, she will start singing and humming along! She likes to draw and do crafts. Josie like Legos and can easily follow building instructions. She also does great with imaginative play too—and will build Lego creations from her imagination. She is a smart girl and does well academically. She enjoys running, riding her bike up and down the driveway, and playing basketball. Her adopted parents told us that Josie wants to be funny (she’s still working on developing a sense of humor), she is helpful, inquisitive, curious, more artistic than mechanical, outgoing, makes friends quickly and is quite social. Josie likes to watch things on tv that are very innocent like Gilligan’s Island or Andy Griffith show. She gets easily upset by action or violence scenes and much prefers to watching things that are silly, funny, and uplifting. Josie is an organized and clean child who keeps her room neat. Even her slippers are nicely aligned at the end of her bed. She takes good care of herself and her things.
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, or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize this adoption. If you live in WI, please let us know, as the adoption process may be longer and a bit more expensive than what is listed in our paperwork. 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! We are only able to work with US citizens living abroad if they are active duty military.
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.
