Mike a 9-year-old boy adopted from the USA foster care system in 2014. He is not doing well in his home. His parents say they are unable to continue to provide him a home. He has not bonded with his parents. He tells them the foster care worker made a mistake when they placed him in his current family. The family says this causes his misplaced anger towards them. His parents think he would thrive better in a home with fewer children.
Mike loves to play soccer, play the X-Box and watch and analyze movies. He’s a great artist. He loves all animals, especially dogs. He enjoys all types of music and will sing any song perfectly on pitch.
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.
If you haven’t started your home study, please contact us for information on how to begin one. However, 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.
Due to state laws, we are unable to place this child in CT, MA, NY, FL, DE or WI. If you live in Oregon, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize the adoption
If you fit what we are looking for, please write to us and request his full information. KidTeenadopting@wiaa.org
