Kerrianne, Breanna, Kevin, Michael, Ella, and Hannah make up this ‘Super Six Sibling Group’. They are loving, smart, polite, intelligent, and caring kids.

Kerrianne recently started high school and is eager to get involved in theater and singing. She describes herself as, “a talented singer and very unique."

Breanna is a sweet young lady with a strong personality. She said, “I like to dance and I like to draw." With the extra guidance and support that Breanna receives in school, both therapeutically and academically, she is learning to stay on track. She needs an adoptive family that will be supportive of the services that she receives.

Kevin is polite, responsible, and very smart. He recently was given the opportunity to apply and interview with one of Philadelphia’s most prestigious grammar schools. When asked to tell a little about himself, he said, “I like to play football and (play) with my family. I play the trombone."

Ella and Michael are twins, but have strong senses of self. They both play instruments and excel in school. Ella proudly said, “I am the class president. I am also a dancer”, while Michael added, “I like to play sports. I am a brave person."

Hannah, the youngest of the family, is adorable and always smiley. She loves to give hugs and can always make you happy. Hannah noted, “My favorite color is orange. My favorite food is Macaroni and Cheese."

All the kids do well in school. Some of them receive speech therapy for aid in pronunciation. The siblings are free for adoption and it is our goal to keep them together while they enter their forever family.
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.
