Say Hi to Mckenna!
She’s a 12-year-old girl that was adopted from foster care. She is in need of a new home. Mckenna has connected past trauma to her current family and it’s been difficult for her to move past that. Her parents want for her to be connected to them, but they feel their efforts have pushed her away. They’ve made the difficult decision that finding her a new home might be in her best interest.
We are looking for a two-parent household (heterosexual and LGBTQ+ couples are invited to inquire). The family believes she would enjoy having a sibling, so families with other children will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The family would prefer a Christian home. There are no preferences as to the age, location or employment of the new adoptive parents. Mckenna loves animals, so a new home with animals would be a major plus.
Mckenna is a sweet girl who is good at making friends. She has a very creative mind and enjoys building things. She has a passion for Legos and is said to be very good at making things with her hands. She enjoys anything artistic and enjoys singing in her school choir.
School/academics are a stressful thing for Mckenna and she will need continued support in that environment. She gets good grades but has a hard time with the rigorous learning that her current school provides.
Mckenna does well with consistent boundaries. She will need a family to love and support her as she navigates through past trauma.

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, or DE. If you live in WI, there are a few steps that have to be followed, but it is possible to adopt from there. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption.
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. There are grants out there to help fund your adoption (please request that information.) This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
