Scarlett is 10 years old and in the 5th grade. She was adopted through the US foster system when she was 3 years old. She currently lives with her adoptive mom, dad, and two brothers who are 9 and 6. Scarlett’s parents say she has a cognitive ability beyond her years. She learns very quickly and is a wizard at memorization. They think she may even have a photographic memory!
This family was Scarlett’s 3rd placement, and she has had a very difficult time attaching to them.She wasn’t told by her 2nd family that they were moving her on, so she thought she was just temporarily staying in this home. She blames them for any past hurts she’s experienced. She does not get along with her brothers and is stuck in the classic rut of wanting to control her parents instead of accepting their love and direction. Her constant desire to control them makes family life challenging for everyone. Her family believes she will finally be able to attach and develop into an awesome little person if she’s given a fresh start. They are looking for a traditional family with two parents or a single parent with a support system. They would like Scarlett to be the youngest child by at least 2 years.
Scarlett loves to write. She can develop long stories and is very gifted with words. She is talkative and likes getting one-on-one time with adults. She actually prefers cleaning and organizing things to playing with toys. She LOVES horses and dreams of becoming a veterinarian one day.
This is a private adoption, so a state or foster home study might not work. A private domestic 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 KS, CT, MA, NY, 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, 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 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. Please let us know your situation.
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.
