Donni(Age 11)
Hello! Introducing the dynamic duo of Donni and Everest, sisters are outgoing and have great senses of humor. They’re looking for a forever family where they can live together.

Donni has a good sense of humor, and she’s both kind and friendly. When asked about the most awesome things about herself, she talked about how good her handwriting is. People who know and work with her describe her as observant and not afraid to ask questions when she doesn’t understand something and also as someone who has an amazing ability to relate to people. She tries to be honest and also to be neat and organized. She enjoys helping clean up around the house. Some of her favorite activities include reading, swimming, and jumping rope. She’s also enjoys playing with any kind of animal. What are her favorite subjects in school? Well, it should be no surprise that reading tops the list, but she also likes science and math. When thinking about her future, she’s expressed interest in being a vet, a cop, and a principal.

Everest, the younger sister, is similarly happy, funny, and smiley. If you ask her what she’s good at, she’d tell you that she has strong muscles, so she can be helpful and tidy. She’s been described as having “a great zest and enthusiasm for life” and as having a bubbly personality. Her favorite things to do are playing outside, swimming, playing board games, and watching TV. Naturally, her favorite thing about school is when she gets to play outside, but her favorite subjects are gym, music, library, and art! She’s learned to use music when she becomes upset. She wants to be a mom when she grows up, and she also wants to work at Ohiopyle helping people go zip-lining!

Donni and Everest are not legally free for adoption.

Is your interest piqued? For more information about these wonderful sisters, please have your family worker contact their recruiter, Julie, at jbarth@cahprogram.org or call the SWAN 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.
