NOTE: We will only answer and process emails from families who fit exactly what we are looking for so pay special attention to the family requirements listed below. Please do not email us trying to obtain an exception.
*Summer just turned 5 (August 2022) and was adopted internationally. She was adopted into a home with several other children very close in age, and as is common with adopted children, she competes with these other children for the attention she craves. Her adopted family feels she would do better in a home where she could be the youngest child by a few years and soak up all the attention she desires (and deserves). We are looking for a homestudy ready family who has no other children under age 8 to adopt Summer. This new adoptive family needs to be either a single (heterosexual) parent or two parent (traditional mom and dad) home. Summer’s family says that the best family environment for her will be one that is gentle, patient and calm.
Second Chance requires that every adoptive family have a current homestudy, or one that can be easily updated. If this fits you and you are interested in adopting Summer, please write to us and request her full profile. We would love to share with you the full reason this child needs a different adoptive home. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org
Summer’s adopted family tells us she is a bubbly, energetic child who likes to laugh, play and be a part of whatever is going on in the room. She enjoys playing with play-dough, doing 50-piece puzzles and jumping on the trampoline. She loves Frozen (especially Elsa and Olaf) and likes to have her hair braided (like Elsa). She’s a girlie-girl who likes bright colors, poofy dresses, wearing fun hats, getting her hair done and painting her nails. Summer also loves the splash park, slides at the park and riding her scooter. She is organizational and likes to sit down with the UNO card game and sort the cards by color. She enjoys play cooking and carrying little trinkets around in her pocket. Summer prefers to play outside rather than inside and likes to pick flower bouquets for people. She loves to snack on strawberries and cheese sticks.
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, NY, WI 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 us 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.
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.
