Wyatt, age 11, was adopted internationally last summer (June ’19). We are looking for a new adoptive home with no other children between 8-13. Second Chance also requires the new adoptive family to have a current (or easily updated) homestudy. Write to [email protected] and ask to see Wyatt’s profile, and learn why he deserves a Second Chance.
Wyatt is a bright, kind-hearted, genuine boy who appreciates (and remarks on) the finer things in life like good clothing, autumn colors, blooming flowers, and delicious foods. He is physically strong with high athletic prowess especially for soccer and running. He enjoys hands-on work like house cleaning and helping in the kitchen and works hard to complete tasks thoroughly and with meticulous attention to detail. He freely and genuinely expresses gratitude to those around him for their efforts toward him. He knows right from wrong and is more and more often making the right daily decisions. He is social, enjoying his family and school. Wyatt is affectionate and loving and generous with compliments to others. He has faith in his abilities to learn and succeed and recently, as he was struggling to learn something from a world map, matter-of-factly stated, “But, I know I can learn it!”.
The current adopted family does not have pets, but report that Wyatt is curious and gentle when interacting with pets at the park or other situations.
Wyatt attends a French Catholic private school. In the adoptive home, he speaks primarily English, but in school for 30 hours a week, only French is spoken.
Wyatt does best with structure and routine rather than laid back. But he is also comfortable with sleeping in on the weekends and relaxed Sundays.
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 DE. If you live in OR, you may need to travel to the child’s state for finalization of the 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 Credits.
