Facts About Second Placement
There are times when a child is adopted by a family, and for various reasons the adoption must be dissolved.
These adoption situations are sometimes called Disruptions or Dissolutions. It is imperative that these families receive counseling and support. Unfortunately, it is sometimes determined that the child's best chance to thrive would be in a new family. These situations must be handled legally and through an adoption attorney and/or licensed adoption service provider. The first adoptive family may NEVER directly place a child into another home on their own. That is illegal.
On RainbowKids, there are a few children listed in this difficult situation. These listings are placed by legal adoption service providers who will carefully screen interested families before offering additional information on the child.
RainbowKids does not direclty list this information, nor will we respond to any inquiries about a specific child by a family. Please use the form listed with each child. This form will go directly to the legal entity that is working towards the placement of the specific child. On RainbowKids we refer to this type of adoption as a "Second Placement".
