Meet Michael. He’s an 8, almost 9-year-old boy that was adopted internationally. He is in need of a new home. Michael and his parents have not attached, which has made things difficult in the home. They simply coexist and are not connected.
We are looking for a single or two parent household (heterosexual and LGBTQ families). We are looking for a family with other children, because Michael seeks out others to play with and they believe if he had siblings closer to his age, that it would help him develop social skills. There is no preference as to religion, location, employment or age of the new adoptive family.
If you fit what we are looking for, please write to us and request his full information. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
The family has tried best to meet Michael’s needs; however he is hypervigilant and appears to not feel emotionally safe in his current home. They have made the difficult decision that they feel he would do better in a new home.
Michael is an active boy. He loves being outside playing sports and riding his bike. He is considered a social butterfly and is open to affection and connection outside of his home. He loves pizza, eggo waffles and hamburgers with only ketchup 🙂
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.
