*Kassidy is 10years old and was adopted internationally. She is in need of a different adoptive home. She was adopted into a home with 1 older brother and a single mom. She has established some negative behavioral patterns in this home and we are hopeful that she will change these if given a fresh start in a new, different adoptive home. Kassidy often wishes out loud for a traditional family with both a Mom and Dad. She does much better in a home with a male present. We are looking for a 2 parent (traditional) home for her with one or two other children near her age or younger (no child aged 10 or 11), who will not be given privileges she doesn’t also get. She spends much of her time in the current home worrying about ‘missing out’ and things ‘not being fair’ due to the other child being 5 years older than her and having more freedom than she does. She may do well as an only child too—soaking up all the attention two parents have to offer! She loves animals and would do well in an active outdoorsy family with pets. Kassidy prefers to have a fairly scheduled routine and know what to expect ahead of time—she likes to be kept in the loop for the daily and weekly schedule. Second Chance requires all adoptive families to have a current homestudy to adopt from our program. If you fit what we’re looking, and are interested in adopting Kassidy, please write to us and request her full profile. Please write to email@example.com .
Kassidy is going into the 5th grade this fall and is at or above grade level in all subjects. She is a great student and enjoys school. She is very charming, kind, giving, respectful, and polite when she meets new people. She likes to watch videos on her tablet and Roku. And to listen to pop music and sing. She likes to draw, paint and color. She will often make drawings as gifts for her friends and teachers. She is very outgoing and social. She likes to play outside and loves wide-open places where she can run freely. She likes dogs and will ask to pet the dogs of people walking in the neighborhood. She is very punctual and dislikes waiting for things to happen. She likes everything to be on a timed schedule and will actually set alarms for when things need to be done, such as snack time or medications. She has a watch with an alarm, and likes to set it for things. Kassidy is very quick to help if you need or ask for it and is very willing to give you things she has.
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 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! If you are a U.S. citizen living overseas, we may be able to work with you depending on a few details.
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
