A large grant will cover the full agency fee for anyone adopting Liam.
*Liam is 10 years old and was adopted internationally at age 5 (2013). We are working with them to find a new adoptive family that lives outside of the state of Indiana and who has no other children under age 12. Please contact us for his full profile at [email protected].
Liam’s family says he is kind-hearted, loving and willing to share with others. He likes to show them his accomplishments right away and wants affirmation that he is doing a good job—and he has a great work ethic! He is a bright and smart child who retains information easily, loves to learn new things and likes to figure out how things work. His dad says he has an engineering mind. He is friendly and enjoys smiling and joking around. Liam enjoys helping with farm chores, taking care of the animals and playing with their family dog. Liam likes to play with Legos, color and draw, ride his bike and play basketball. He is an outside kid! Liam is going into the second grade this fall and his teachers all like him. His favorite subject is math.
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, or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state for finalization of this adoption. 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 qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credits.
*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.
