Steven, Stephanie, and Scott are a terrific group of children who are looking for a family who will keep them together, even though they are currently placed in two different homes. They are not yet legally free for adoption, however when a permanent resource is identified, the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
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.
