Meet Alex, Danny, and Sam! This terrific trio is looking forward to finding their forever family!
Alex is a driven, thoughtful, and insightful young man. He enjoys playing on his high school football team, tossing the football around with his siblings, and being outdoors. Alex currently maintains a part-time job at a local grocery store and enjoys earning his own money. He attends regular education classes and has clear goals for his future, including attending vocational school to study welding or carpentry. Alex’s ideal forever family would help him learn how to prepare for living independently one day. Alex is a wonderful and loving big brother who enjoys looking after and spending time with his two younger siblings. It is important to him to know that his siblings are in a safe and loving forever family so that he can focus on preparing himself for adulthood. When spending time with all three children, it is quickly evident the strong, loving, and positive bond they share, as well as the fun they have together.
Danny is an absolute sweetheart! He is always the life of the party, as he can often be found dancing to the Just Dance video game, playing basketball, or telling jokes. Danny loves to give hugs and tries his best to be helpful around the house. Anyone who spends time with Danny is quickly drawn to his engaging, delightful personality. Danny shares a very close, positive relationship with his brother and sister. Danny’s ideal forever family would love and support him unconditionally. They would enjoy traditional family activities, such as family dinners, family movie nights, or going to parks or the beach together. Danny very much loves school. He is currently working on learning basic job skills. He is not sure about his goals for future but would like a family willing to help guide him into adulthood.
Sam is a playful, active girl who can be described as a tomboy. She loves running, climbing fences, and playing tag and wrestling with her older brothers. Sam also enjoys going to the park, watching scary movies, and hanging out with her friends. Sam would love a family willing to encourage her in exploring different interests to discover her strengths and help her grow in them. Sam shares an extremely close, positive relationship with her two older brothers and looks up to them. Her ideal forever family would help her preserve these relationships by keeping the three of them together. Sam is currently placed in regular education classes. She loves school and is looking forward to returning to a "normal" school schedule for the upcoming school year.
Parental rights have not been terminated for Alex, Danny, and Sam; however once a permanent resource is identified the county will enact final steps to terminate parental rights.
For more information, a family can call the SWAN Helpline at 1-800-585-SWAN or have the family worker contact the recruiter, Kimberly Hillman, via telephone or email firstname.lastname@example.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.
