Priya – Placed
*Priya is 10 years old and was adopted from an African country recently closed to adoptions. Second Chance is looking for a new adoptive family for Priya with no other children under age 12. If you fit this and would like to know more about Priya, please write back to us at [email protected] and ask for her full profile.
Priya’s adopted parents say she is quiet and introverted. She is observant, intelligent, a hard worker, strong-willed, and can be charming and respectful. She enjoys playing soccer, running, reading, art, and baking. If you write us for her information, you will see several pieces of her art in her full profile. Her perfectionist tendencies show whenever she is given a task to complete—she works hard to do things well. She has a good imagination when playing. Her adopted dad says she has excellent manners. Priya has recently been reading the Little House on the Prairie series. She is also safe with the family’s pets.
Priya is finishing 4th grade and gets mostly A’s. Math is her favorite and strongest subject. She does well in writing but stresses out about it because she’s not perfect at it. Creative writing is difficult for her; she prefers information writing. She likes getting A’s and wants to be perfect in school. She wants to have all the answers and is performance driven. She takes school very seriously.
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, or DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel out of state for finalization of this adoption. 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!
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.
