*Mia just turned 5 and was adopted internationally by relatives a few months ago. She has exhibited behaviors in her new adoptive home that require she be readopted into a home with no young children. Please write us at secondchanc[email protected] to receive Mia’s full profile of information, and our process of being approved for a Second Chance adoption
Mia likes to play outside on the playground as well as jumping on the trampoline. She likes singing, music and drawing. She likes to watch cartoons. Mia is good at putting together puzzles and building toys like Legos and magnet tiles. Her adopted family says she has a resilient spirit, and they feel she is ready to bond with her forever family.
Mia speaks English well because of her attendance in an English-speaking preschool prior to adoption. Currently, Mia is in Pre-K and loves school. She knows her colors and shapes and recognizes most letters. She is a bright child and enjoys the learning environment.
Mia sleeps well and is always dry at night. She has no allergies and eats well.
Second Chance is partnering with Mia’s adopted family to find a new adoptive family for her with no other children under age 10. Mia’s family thinks a traditional two-parent home (mom and dad) would be great for her, as she needs to see what a ‘safe’ male role model looks like, but they are willing to consider a single mom or 2-mom family (who has a safe male role model available). This family will need to have access to trauma therapy for Mia. If your family fits this, and you’d like to consider adding her to your family, please write back to us for her ‘additional information’ as well as info on how to be preapproved for our program.
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. Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, or DE. If you have never had a homestudy before, we cannot help you adopt this child. But, we would love to share with you the process of starting a homestudy 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.
