*Tucker is 8 years old and needs to find his forever family—who is able to love and support him for life. He has had two failed adoptions due to a lack of transparency of his needs and abilities. Second Chance is committed to helping find the family who will invest in Tucker long-term and help him reach his full potential. We are looking for a family for him who has a current homestudy (or one that can be quickly updated) and no other kids under age 11 (typically functioning). The family should have good insurance for Tucker’s medications and on-going therapies. We will consider all different kinds of families if they can provide well for Tucker’s needs. Please write to us if you’d like to know more about Tucker and his need for a different adoptive family. Write to [email protected]
Tucker enjoys drawing and reading. He also likes to play outside especially in the pool (swimming) or with water. He can be very affectionate and give hugs to people and enjoys being close to people. He is starting to do better at school and with a good teacher he will continue to learn. He is gentle and patient with younger children. He likes to color with crayons, markers, chalk and playdough. He likes to sing and loves anything to do with food. He also enjoys going to the park.

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, OR 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! We are only able to work with US citizens living abroad if they are active duty military.
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.
