Meet Boy Scouts: Jake and Cole!

Jake is the older brother of the pair, who is described as being responsible and someone who cares deeply for those around him. Jake loves collecting and trading Pokémon Cards with his friends. He is a Webelo Boy Scout and would love to continue moving through the program. Jake likes to play board games and video games. One of his favorite past times is being read to before bed. He finds this to be a calming, relaxing, and enjoyable way to wind down his day. Jake would love to play on a soccer team this year in school. Jake is very close to his younger brother Cole, and they spend a lot of time together.

Those who know Cole describe him as loving and affectionate. He takes pride in being a Boy Scout (Wolf Status). He enjoys playing video games, Pop-Its, card games, (especially Uno), and Play-Doh. Cole loves airplanes and hopes to become a pilot someday. He finds anything related to The Titanic very interesting. Cole also enjoys outside games, such as hide-n-seek and tag. Cole would love to play on a soccer team this year in school.

Jake and Cole would love to have a family who will connect with them by playing games, reading books, and being physically affectionate. Jake and Cole would love to join a family who could give them a lot of nurturing and undivided attention.

Currently, Jake and Cole have phone calls and visits with their birth parents twice a week in the Southeast Region of Pennsylvania. Prospective resource parents will need to accommodate these visits and maintain these relationships.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Jake and Cole.

For more information, a family can call the SWAN Helpline at 1-800-585-SWAN or have the family worker contact the recruiter, Melissa Barto, via telephone or email melissa@cobys.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.
