*Regan is 7 (turning 8 soon). Her family is working with Second Chance to find a better fitting home for her with no other children under age 10 and a current (or easily updated home study). Regan loves to go to church and sing Christian music. Praying before bedtime is very important to her also, so we would like her new family to have a comfortable relationship with God so they can continue this important part of Regan’s life. Please write to [email protected] if you would like to read the in-depth profile we have available for Regan and learn more about how a Second Chance adoption works. Please write to us!
Regan’s adoptive parents tell us that she is imaginative, smart, clever, active, outgoing, talkative, inquisitive and self-sufficient. She cares for herself well—dressing, feeding, and cleaning herself. Regan loves to go to church and sing worship songs. She smiles a lot and is an energetic and happy child most of the time. She is kind to others and quick to share what she has. She is a girly-girl who likes to dress up and wear makeup and jewelry. She owns a lot of Chapstick since she loves lipstick so much but is too young to wear it! Regan has a good sense of humor and likes to make others laugh. She tries to be helpful around the house—the family has 3 small dogs and a cat and she is kind and helpful with their care. Regan likes to swim, ride her bike and scooter and roller skate, although she tends toward being more of an indoor sedentary kid if not encouraged to go outside and be active. She prefers the company of others over being alone. Regan never holds a grudge, she moves on from negative situations very quickly, almost like it never happened. She likes to color and read books, and enjoys doing gymnastics. Regan is just finishing up the 2nd grade and her teachers say she is a great kid to have in class. She loves school and learning.

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 to the child’s state to finalize 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 may qualify 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.
