Zion(Age 6)
LaVonda is a young girl who is shy and quiet. She likes to spend her free time doing independent activities, such as coloring, reading and watching her favorite TV show, My Little Pony. She enjoys playing outside, especially hopscotch and jumping rope. LaVonda often engages her brother to play outdoors with her. In the winter, LaVonda states that her favorite outdoor activities include making snow angels and having snowball fights with her brother. Her favorite colors are pink and purple, and her favorite food is fruit. If LaVonda could go anywhere in the world, she would choose to go to the zoo to see her favorite animal: a panda bear.

Zion is a young boy who has dark eyes and wildly curly hair. He needs a forever family to provide for his needs. Zion communicates mostly by pointing at objects and nodding or shaking his head. He enjoys activities such as games, riding his big wheel, and playing with K’nex. Zion’s I-Pad is also a constant theme in his daily routing.

LaVonda and Zion need a patient, kind, and loving forever family who can provide a constant daily schedule with clear boundaries. Lavonda and Zion currently have weekly visits with their mother in southeastern Pennsylvania. Any family that is interested in providing permanency for these siblings would need to be willing to support and accommodate these visits.

LaVonda and Zion are not legally free for adoption.
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.
