Samuel(Age 7)
Meet the amazing and dynamic duo of Eli and Samuel, brothers who are looking for their forever home.

First up is older brother Eli, who has a kind soul and a beautiful heart for loving others. Empathetic and affectionate, he loves being a part of a family dynamic! Favorite activities include riding bikes, playing with matchbox cars, and re-watching “The Mitchells vs. Machines” for the thirty-second time (according to him). He’s a great big brother and is often seen trying to help Samuel with everyday tasks. He isn’t much of a water person, but is looking forward to learning how to swim this summer. He loves to spend one-on-one time with caregivers and is often seen trying to help throughout his foster home. He does really well in school (his favorite subject is math) and loves to see all of his friends.

Next up is younger brother Samuel, described as an old soul with a gift for making others laugh. Brave and bold, he loves being the center of attention in everything he does. He loves being outside, spending hours in the bathtub, and making new friends. With all the superpowers of a good leader, he does best with caregivers who provide him with structure and a solid routine. As the self-proclaimed little man of the house, he does best with caregivers who stay consistent and set clear boundaries. A solid routine is essential for Samuel and use of timeouts and loss of privileges (such as an outing), produce the best results. He loves to help in the kitchen, and is learning a lot about safety as he helps his foster mother. He works hard in school and has great teachers who are helping him catch up after he struggled over the COVID 19 crisis.

Eli and Samuel will be placed together. They both do well with pets and other children.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Eli and Samuel.

For more information, a family can call the SWAN Helpline at 1-800-585-SWAN or have the family worker contact the recruiter, Molly Smithmyer, via telephone or email msmithmyer@pfcs.org.
Families must have an approved Family Profile (home study) to adopt a child. Only those families with approved profiles will be considered by the child’s caseworker in the county children and youth agency with custody of the child.
The information is given by PAE based solely on the statement of the family that they are approved to adopt. Families in Pennsylvania without an approved Family Profile are directed to contact 1-800-585-SWAN1-800-585-SWAN to pursue an agency in their geographic area. Families living outside of Pennsylvania are encouraged to work with an agency in their state to prepare the profile.
