Meet Lacey. our newest KidTeen client. She’s a young girl we call “Lacey” because we need to keep her name private. She is 12-years-old.
We are looking for a home study ready (or one that can be quickly updated) single mom or two-parent family with no other children in the home or other girls over the age of 15.
The family believes it would be good for Lacey to have a church to go to. She was baptized Catholic, but they have no preference as to denomination or if any. The family believes Lacey would do well with either a stay-at-home parent or working parents. They have no preference as to the age of the new parents.
If you fit what we are looking for, please write to us at and request her full information KidTeenadopting@wiaa.org
Lacey was adopted from Bulgaria when she was 7. She blames her mother for things her biological mother did. She would like a different parent.
Lacey is in need of a new adoptive home. The family tells us that she is intelligent, but doesn’t do well in school. Her mom got her an IEP to help with her education services.
Lacey loves sports. She plays soccer, basketball, volleyball, and swimming. She loves playing on teams She likes music, art, drawing and movies of all types. Loves dancing and singing with her friends. She enjoys watching cooking shows. She has a love of nature. She likes animals of all kinds, especially dogs.
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster care home study might not work. A state authorized private domestic or international home study is generally required. You will need a current, updated or new home study for this adoption.
Due to state laws, we are unable to place this child in CT, MA, NY, FL, DE or WI. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption. If you haven’t started your home study, please contact us for information on how to begin one. However, if we have home study ready families for this child, we will consider them first. Therefore, if you are willing to take a child between the ages of 9 and 15, we suggest you begin the process as soon as possible.
We know that adopting a child over the age of 9 is going to be difficult, but we feel confident that there are parents of all types, single men and women, traditional couples and same-sex couples out there who love kids and would love to add them to their families.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated with them. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
