Meet the A team of Asher and Austin!

Asher is a funny and active boy who describes himself as a night owl who loves chocolate. Asher is watchful when first meeting new people but will then gladly discuss any topic with you as he enjoys learning about all subjects. He loves to be active outside in all seasons. Asher’s favorite activity is playing on the trampoline in the yard. When inside, Asher likes to play Fort Night. He is currently in 3rd grade for the 2020-2021 school term and is doing very well in school.

Austin is a funny, sweet and intelligent little boy. Austin is the opposite of his brother in that he is a DEFINITE morning person; usually waking up at 5:30-6:00 AM. He is currently attending a preschool program five days a week. Austin likes to play with any action figure, trucks, or Legos. And just like Asher, he really likes being active outside. He also has a strong love of music. He does really well when he has a consistent routine, especially having bedtime rituals to help wind down from the day’s events.

Asher and Austin wish to remain in contact with their older sister and a family will need to be able to support their relationship ongoing. The boys also have family visitation with their mother.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Asher and Austin.

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.
