*Mason was adopted internationally last year. His paperwork states that he is 4 years old but a recent hand x-ray suggests that he may be as old as 7. Emotionally he is closer to 4 or 5, and his current mom feels his new adoptive family should keep his legal age (of 4). He has lost one lower tooth already and has a second one loose (at the time of this writing 10/2018). His adopted mom reports he is NOT ready for 1st or 2nd grade either but will probably do great in kindergarten. We are helping her find a new adoptive family for Mason who has a current homestudy (or easily updated), no other children under age 8. Please write to us at [email protected]
Mason is outgoing and affectionate with non-family members. He smiles and laughs easily. His adopted mom says he’s funny and engaging. He is fearless and willing to try anything, and is always up for traveling and adventure. Mason likes books, coloring, Legos, train sets and stuffed animals. He enjoys physical games like tag, soccer, and being outside. He did great in gymnastic class. His favorite cartoon character is Mickey Mouse and he loves amusement parks and rollercoasters. He enjoys singing and dancing to music.
Mason sleeps well at night and is dry about 50% of the time. He has no allergies to food and enjoys all kinds of food.
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, or DE. 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.
