*Tate is 9 years old and was adopted domestically. He has been living in a residential facility for several years, working on behaviors and his adopted family is hopeful that he is ready to integrate into a new adoptive home. We are looking for an adoptive family who has a current (or easily-to-update homestudy), and either a parent or sibling who is very dark skinned. Tate is conscious of different colors and seems to connect best with others who look like him. Tate may do well in a small family, with no other kids near his age (and none younger), or in a large family where he can possibly attach to a sibling rather than have the pressure of the parent-child relationship. Please write to us for his full profile and to learn more about adopting through Second Chance. Please write to [email protected] .
Tate enjoys outside activities like riding his bike. He will do that for hours! He likes to be included in activities; he is not a loner. He does best with controlled activities with an adult nearby to intervene if things get tense. He has a great smile—and loves to laugh. He can be very sweet. He is helpful and enjoys doing kitchen chores along-side an adult. Tate’s typical attitude is go-with-the-flow. He gets excited about gifts and surprises. He is mischievous, sincere when talking to you and good at communicating his needs. He has learned to be in touch with his emotions and will tell you if he is upset and why. He is never afraid to work through emotions with his safe adult.
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 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 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.
