*Peter just turned 10 in Sept 2022 and was adopted internationally. While having some pretty typical attachment issues with his adopted mom, Peter formed a very close, healthy bond with his adopted dad. Sadly, his dad passed away unexpectedly this spring and the family has been struggling through grief and trying to find a ‘new’ normal. The family feels that Peter does best with a strong male influence in his life and that he needs that to continue as he grows up. We are looking for a homestudy ready family with a strong dad-figure and no other children under age 12 to adopt Peter. If this fits your family, please write to us for his full profile. We have a lot of great info to share with you. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Peter’s family tells us that he is very outgoing and friendly. He is independent and determined to figure things out. He wants to excel in life. He is creative with his Lego constructions and has great imaginative stories to go along with the scenarios he invents with his creations—for example, he built a carwash and drove his hot wheel cars through it. Sometimes there will be a ‘car wreck’ with his hot wheels and then the helicopter will come take someone to the hospital. He is always interested in medical and fire personnel and what they’re doing. Peter loves to dance to music and enjoys nature—going on walks and riding his bike and scooter. He loves all kinds of vehicles and looking at bugs. Peter is more of an ‘outdoor’ kid, as long as it’s not too hot outside—he does not like to sit and watch TV, he would rather be moving, doing something interesting. He is an amazing swimmer—he taught himself to swim when he was just 3 years old,by watching his older siblings and with encouragement from the whole family. He can hold his breath under water for the longest time of anyone in the family! Right now, he is refusing to do any of these things he once found fun—because he is missing his dad so much. Some of Peter’s favorite foods include chicken nuggets (he gets Chick-Fil-A once a week as a reward for good behavior), diet lemonade and vanilla Oreo cookies. Peter loves school and is in the 4th grade in a non-traditional classroom. He is making great progress toward the expectations listed in his IEP.

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. You will need to have a current, or easily-updated home study for this adoption.
Due to state laws, we are not able to place this child in CT, MA, NY, WI or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state to finalize this adoption. If you live in WI or FL, please let us know, as the adoption process may be longer and a bit more expensive than what is listed in our paperwork. If you have never had a home study before, we cannot help you adopt this child. But we would love to share with you the process of starting a home study so you could be approved for a child in the near future. Please write to us and ask us how to get started! If you are a U.S. citizen living overseas, we may be able to work with you depending on a few details.
Adoption is a legal process so there will be costs associated. This adoption may qualify for the IRS Adoption Tax Credit.

*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.
