Oliver – Placed
*Oliver is almost 8 and is in the 2nd grade. He is in excellent health and absolutely adorable.
Oliver is in a home without a dad, and it is believed that he really needs an involved dad in his new home.
Oliver LOVES structure and reliability! He thrives on carefully following a schedule and prefers to have everything around him neat and organized. He keeps his room and all his belongings clean and orderly. He is very sweet and kind to younger children and we feel he will do great in a new home with younger children (younger than 6, since we require at least a two year age difference between children). He also has cats and dogs in his current home and gets along with them well. His current family feels that he respects men more than women, and will therefore do much better in a new home with an involved male role model for him.
We have all kinds of records for Oliver that we can send you!
Oliver is a very good reader, he reads above grade level. He also enjoys board and card games like Go Fish and Checkers. If you are familiar with The Love Languages book, we think that Oliver’s ‘language’ is probably quality time…so we are hoping to find a family for him that will have quite a bit of ‘down’ time to spend with him—especially his new Dad!
We have more information available about Oliver. Please email us back if you would like to see copies of this child’s records and learn more about him. Email [email protected]
We will not place a Second Chance child into a home that already has children within 2 yrs of the new child’s age. For Oliver, this means no other children in the home between the ages of 6-10.
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, MO, or DE.
Adoption is a legal process so costs for the adoption are $200 application fee, $3500 agency fee, interstate adoption approval ($1000-$1500) and travel to his state for a couple days to bring him home. This adoption qualifies for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.
