Upcoming Events
Consider adopting older youth. In Pennsylvania, youth can remain in foster care until the age of 21. Many of the matching events listed on this page provide families with opportunities to meet older youth in care who are in need of permanency. Even though many of these youth are on their way to young adulthood, they continue to need permanent connections and a family to support, love and care for them. To learn more about this group of older youth please visit the Waiting Children section, and use the Search Kids tool and search by age range 17 to 21.

We celebrate upcoming birthdays for: Tellie C02AA57, Dylan C02AB79, Albert C02AC01, Sarah C06AG85, Natasha C06AQ58, Nora C09AH43, Amber C10AA46, Craig C13AA23, Grace C14AB11, Roberto C15AC24, Anna C19AA15, Larry C20AC23, Katie C21AA15, Thomas C23AB90, Adam C25AB55, James C28AB29, Quinton C28AB37, Jason C36AB43, Preston C36AB50, Jack C36AB90, Taylor C37AA51, Joseph C39AD66, David C49AB36, Daevon C51BR27, Joshua C51CQ11, Lanece C51CQ25, Marvin C51CS12, Alganar C51CW05, Zaya C51CV51, Nova C51DK13, Ahmir C51BW83, Donovan C56AA71, Seonghwa C56AA60, Grace C56AA76, Ivan C63AA73, Jazmine C63AA76, Sam C63AA79, Eric C64AA22, Kodie C67AD74, and Giovanni C67AF73.
