Sam is a friendly, polite, and articulate boy. He has a creative mind and loves making animations on his tablet! Sam enjoys drawing pictures, watching TV, playing tennis, and swimming in the summer. His favorite movie/TV genres include funny, scary and action. He also shared that riding his bike, playing with friends, and playing football are things he likes to do in his free time. Here is an amazing fun fact: Sam can beatbox to digital music!

Victor is a very affectionate, creative, and energetic boy. He loves Sonic, drawing, and playing with Legos. He is incredibly imaginative! He can take “simple” items and turn them into his own creation. For example, he was doing an activity that involved popsicle sticks and he immediately said, “these can be used to move dolls!” He really likes marionette puppets. He also has a Pinocchio stuffed toy that is his favorite. He has been enjoying Thomas the Train themed toys. Victor enjoys having new visitors and loves soaking up attention when he can. Victor claims to not be a picky eater because he is a "really hungry boy." Victor likes to be around other people and pets, especially when he can soak up the positive attention. He is still trying to find his way in this world and tries to do so by connecting with those around him.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Sam and Victor.

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.
