*Kamryn is a 7 year old who was adopted here in the U.S. by a family who now has two younger bio children. They brought her into their home as a foster child when she was 7 days old although reunification attempts were made for more than a year afterwards.
Kamryn has a smile that can ‘light up a room’! She has a magnetic personality that attracts everyone around her. Her kind heart shows the most whenever someone is in need. She is the welcoming committee whenever a new kid comes to school. One of her teachers said, “She never wants anyone to feel like they are not welcome”. Kamryn has a tender heart toward anyone she sees who is suffering—she was watching a news story once on a family who lost children during an earthquake in a foreign country and it made her cry for them. She even got the ‘fairness’ award at school. Kamryn has a good vocabulary and both children and adults enjoy talking with her.
Kamryn is very athletic, she loves to play outside on her playset or ride her bike. She received an excellence award in school for PE this past school year. She is energetic and enjoys helping with outside projects. She also enjoys art and is exceptionally talented at it. She won second place for a painting in her school’s art show this year. We’ve included a snapshot of this for you to see (if you write us for her ‘full profile’). Kamryn enjoys playing dress up (especially princesses) and doing all kinds of arts and crafts. She loves to make things to give to others like artwork, stories, and jewelry. She is a girly-girl who likes to dress up with dresses, shoes, hair accessories and painting her nails. She also likes to help in the kitchen with baking and cooking. She doesn’t have any food allergies and loves berries and oranges. But, if you ask her what her favorite food is, she’s going to tell you frosting! Haha! She’s a “sweets” girl all the way! Kamryn is an easy traveler, and enjoys staying in hotels.
Kamryn is good with animals; she likes horses, cows, chickens, dogs and cats.
Kamryn has friends and makes friends easily. She can be very kind and welcoming to others, especially new kids in class. She is good about inviting others to play and makes sure no one feels excluded.
Kamryn is going into the 2nd grade and has been attending a small Christian school. She was on the honor roll all last year.
Kamryn’s current family is involved in church and she really likes it, so they are hoping to find a new adoptive family for her who is either Christian or Messianic Jew. Her parents say, “we believe the Lord saved *Kamryn for a special purpose and another Christian family will continue the work in her life and story that began with us”.
Second Chance is requiring that the new family have no other children under age 9 in the family (and no plans to add any younger children for at least 3 years after Kamryn’s adoption).
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. If you have never had a homestudy done before, we cannot help you adopt this child. We would love to tell you how to get started with a homestudy so you can be considered in the future for another child. Please write to us! Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, or DE. If you live in OR, the adoption might have to finalize in Kamryn’s state.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
