*Trey just turned 6 and was adopted domestically. He has not attached well to his first adoptive family and they have partnered with us to find another better fitting adoptive home for him. We will consider homestudy ready families who have no other children under the age of 8. If you fit this and are interested in adding Trey to your family, please write to [email protected]and request his full profile. We have a lot of information to share with you.
Trey’s family told us that he likes to play outside and is kind to other children and pets. He loves pb and j sandwiches and chicken nuggets, but is very allergic to dairy. He is an easy, quiet child who is content to just hang out and play on his tablet. He likes to watch a variety of shows and play toddler games on his tablet and doesn’t fixate on one thing. He has limited expressive language ability, but his receptive skills are great. He easily understands and follows verbalinstructions. Trey’s favorite cartoons feature Spiderman! His adopted family reports that he is a go-with-the-flow sort of kid. At school and home, he has a pretty strict schedule and he does well with that. At the babysitter’s, the schedule is flexible and relaxed—and he does great there too! Trey is in a self-contained classroom in school where he is working on educational as well as life skills. He can write his name, count to 20, sort by shapes and knows his letters.
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, NY or DE. 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.
