Reese – Placed
*Reese is 10 years old and was adopted at birth from US foster care.
Reese’s family says she loves music, singing and dancing. She likes to swim, jump on the trampoline and ride her bike. She has a good memory and is a quick learner. Friendships are important to Reese, both with other children and adults. She is a girlie-girl whose favorite color is pink and she loves nail polish and lip gloss. She prefers dresses and skirts. Her adopted mom says she loves to laugh and joke and has a smile all the time. In school, she is finishing up the 3rd grade. She gets straight A’s and feels that school is ‘easy’ for her.
This is a child with no special needs but wants to be in a family who goes to church. She loves to sing praise songs and read her Bible. She and her parents want her to be in a family that does this. She gets along with everyone and has no major behavioral problems. Her parents want her to be in a family that is involved in church, and church related activities.
Reese is outgoing and loves to be active and involved with others in her family and community. Her family is hopeful that her new family will be large and closely connected to extended family such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Second Chance is going to require that a new adoptive family for Reese has children older than 12, and perhaps a child between ages 4-8. If this sounds like your family, please write to us at [email protected] and ask for Reese’s full profile. We’d love to share her information with you and our process of being preapproved for a Second Chance adoption!
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, or DE. If you live in OR you may need to travel back to the child’s state for finalization of the adoption.
If you have never had a homestudy before, we cannot help you adopt this child. But, we would love to share with you the process of starting a homestudy 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.
