Chloe is an outgoing, friendly and social 13-year-old girl of Caucasian descent. Her favorite activities are listening to music, working on arts and crafts projects, attending dance classes, and spending time with her friends. Chloe has many interests and is open to trying new things. She has made a few friends at school and is successful in class with extra supports. Chloe is doing very well in her foster home.

Legally freed for adoption, Chloe will thrive in an attentive and supportive home of any constellation that can provide her with consistent boundaries. Chloe will do best in a home where she can be an only-child or have older siblings. A family should be open to helping Chloe maintain contact with her biological siblings and other birth family, as these relationships are important to her.

Can you provide the guidance, love and stability that a child needs? If you’re at least 18 years old, have a stable source of income, and room in your heart, you may be a perfect match to adopt a waiting child. Adoptive parents can be single, married, or partnered; experienced or not; renters or homeowners; LGBTQ singles and couples.

The process to adopt a child from foster care requires training, interviews, and home visits to determine if adoption is right for you, and if so, to help connect you with a child or sibling group that your family will be a good match for.
