Chris(Age 12)

Chris is a friendly and genuine young man who enjoys making those around him smile. When Chris isn’t jumping on the trampoline outside, he loves playing on his tablet, as he really enjoys watching different YouTube videos or playing his favorite game, “Clash and Clams.” Chris resides in a foster home with his two younger sisters, whom he enjoys making laugh, and spending time playing outside with. Chris used to be a picky eater, but those days are long gone! His foster mother worked with him on trying new foods, and now this kid just loves to eat! If you ask him, he is happy to tell you that his favorite food of all is “walking tacos!” Chris enjoys going to school and is the type of kid who will go to bat for any classmate in need. He is working on learning lots of new skills in school that will help him become more independent and confident, which he is super stoked about. Chris loves animals, with the exception of our reptilian friends, and would love a forever home that has family pets he could enjoy.

Jessica is an outgoing, enthusiastic young lady who loves meeting new people and is quite the conversationalist. She is extremely artistic, and loves utilizing this talent to express herself. Jessica is a very active girl, who can often be found outside jumping on the trampoline and practicing her various self-taught gymnastics skills. Jessica is an “old soul,” with a tender heart, who looks out for her brother and sister with whom she currently resides. She is quite spunky by nature, and truly has a larger than life personality which shines through the moment she walks in the room. When she isn’t active outside, you can find Jessica playing on her tablet, or listening to her favorite music. Jessica loves animals, and would enjoy a forever home who has a family pet she could cuddle up with and nurture.

Betty is an extremely outgoing and energetic young girl with a zest for life. She can often be found coloring, drawing, or expressing herself artistically through the use of various mediums. Betty loves bright colors, and stated that her favorites are red and yellow. She is a very active girl with lots of energy, which will come in handy, as she has a strong desire to play soccer. Betty loves animals, particularly cats. She is hoping to find a forever home who will allow family pets that she can snuggle up with and love. Betty is looking for a very active family who will take her and her siblings on lots of outdoor adventures.

Chris, Jessica and Betty will thrive in an environment where they will be nurtured, supported, and provided with structure and consistency. These three would benefit from being in a home where they could feel special and would do well with older siblings to look up to. They’d also love having the undivided attention of parents, so they would also be ok with being the only children in the home too. The children currently visit with birth family in the Southeast region of PA.

Chris, Jessica, and Betty are not yet legally free for adoption. To learn more about these siblings, please call the SWAN Helpline at 1.800.585.SWAN or have your family recruiter contact Nikole Krosecz via telephone or email
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.
