Jacob(Age 14)
“My name is Jacob and I love to play video games, especially, on my Xbox. I have been on student council in my school. I am really proud that I am reading above my grade level. I have a really good relationship with my sister, but I wouldn’t be upset if we didn’t live together. I want to live in a home that doesn’t have weird chores. I don’t mind cleaning my room or taking out the trash, but cleaning the trash can is a chore I don’t want to do. I want to live in a house where it is possible that I can have my own room. I would like that but I will share with another person if necessary. I just want a home where I can feel safe and loved by the parents.”

“My name is Karen and I am funny, a good listener, and I love my brother. I am quiet at first but when I get to know you I love to talk. My favorite thing to do is play Trouble. Trouble is my favorite game and I love playing with new people. If I lived in my dream home then I would live in a big house with a yard, with a mom and dad, and one other sibling. I would love to have my own room. What I want people to know about me is I want to feel safe and loved. The most important thing for me is that I want a family.”

Jacob and Karen are not yet legally free. For more information on these siblings, please have your worker reach out to their recruiter, Laura Presser, at lpresser@valleyyouthhouse.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.
