*Ryker is 5 years old and was adopted last year internationally. We are looking for a new adoptive family with a current (or easily updated) homestudy and no other children under age 7. Please write to us at [email protected] if you would like to learn more about Ryker and our process of being approved for his adoption.
Ryker’s family reports that he is a curious child who likes to explore. He absolutely LOVES cars—real cars, and toy cars. He’s a good traveler and likes to go places in his car seat. He likes to watch Paw Patrol and Mickey Mouse on TV. He especially enjoys playing outside on the swing and slide. He has a great belly laugh and is smiling and happy almost all the time! He loves to eat—especially meat, lunch meats, chips, yogurt—he will try pretty much anything!
Ryker sleeps well at night and likes to listen to lullabies while going to sleep.
Ryker loves school and is in special multi-age classroom. He has some delays and has great receptive language skills but uses ASL as his primary means of communication. He knows 10-15 words of ASL and is able to make his needs known.

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 east coast to finalize the adoption in the child’s state of origin. If you have never had a home study before, we cannot help you adopt this child. We would love to help you get started with a homestudy. 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.
