Alexis(Age 13)
Meet Alexis! She is a sassy teenager with an electrifying singing voice that can illuminate any room. Alexis enjoys listening to current Hip Hop and R&B music. Her favorite artists are Beyoncé, Lil Mix, and Chris Brown. In her spare time, Alexis enjoys braiding and styling her hair, watching television, dancing, and surfing the web on her cell phone. Alexis is a very active young lady; she participates in volleyball and basketball during the school year. Alexis is described as “helpful” by her current foster parent and she keeps her room clean and assists with other household chores. Alexis is open to a single mother or a two parent household.

Meet Rodney! He is a quiet and reserved pre-teen. Rodney is silly, goofy, and has a great sense of humor. Rodney enjoys arts and crafts, playing basketball and football, and playing video games on his PlayStation. Rodney enjoys having family dinners with his foster family. Rodney stated that this is his favorite part of the day. Rodney really enjoys home cooked meals. His favorite foods are fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, and pork chops. Although Rodney can be very shy, with a little encouragement and time, he will shine like a star. Rodney is a kid of few words but he really knows how to make his words count and resonate. Rodney has strong connections to his school and would desire to remain at the same school, if possible. Rodney does not have any preferences in regards to pets.

Alexis and Rodney currently have monthly visitation with an older sibling and it would be ideal to maintain this connection. The children are open to a single mother or father as well as a two-parent family. Rodney has expressed that he would enjoy a strong male role model especially someone who can help develop his self- confidence and leadership potential. These siblings are looking for a home that will adopt them together.

Alexis and Rodney are legally free for adoption. For more information about Alexis and Rodney, please have your family worker contact Janaeyah M. Reid at or call the Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network’s Helpline at 1-800-585-SWAN.
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.
