We are looking for a loving adoptive family for Max* and Michael*, 4-year-old twin brothers (turning 5 in June 2023). Both boys were diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in 2020.

Max and Michael have been raised in a loving family since birth, but due to current circumstances, their parents feel they do not have the emotional or physical resources needed to fully provide for their sons’ needs long-term. They are actively looking for an adoptive family that will be able to provide the love and care they know these sweet boys deserve.

Max and Michael are of Chinese descent. They were born in the United States and currently live with their family in New York City. Both Max and Michael exhibit significant delays in their cognitive, language, fine motor and social skills. They both attend public school in a special education setting where they receive individualized services. They also receive consistent at-home ABA therapy. Their mother shared that Michael loves playing with his musical puzzles and pop-up toys, and also enjoys playing with bubbles and his toy dollhouse. Max enjoys playing with toy cars, loves singing nursery rhymes and going up and down slides.

Michael and Max’s parents are looking to make an open adoption plan for their twin boys. They have shared that they want to find a loving family that can provide all the attention, time, care, and access to services the children will need. If you would like to be considered as a forever family through Spence-Chapin’s Domestic Special Needs Adoption Program, please submit our free Domestic Special Needs Adoption Pre-Application and send us a copy of your current home study (home visit completed within the past 12 months), conducted by a licensed adoption agency. Families living anywhere in the United States are welcome to apply. We are unable to consider families that do not have a current home study or a home study completed by an independent social worker.
