Meet Patrick, Ben, Marcus, and Anna.

Patrick is a boy of few words and big smiles. He has a playful attitude and loves to joke and tease you once he opens up to you. Patrick is a huge fan of Kidz Bop music, and loves to play video games, watch television, and hanging outside with other children. Patrick’s mind is always active and enjoys playing games that require a lot of thinking, such as chess, and he will make sure that you know he has made a good move. He also enjoys having movie nights with his family; his favorites are scary movies. Patrick does well academically and his favorite subject is art class. He also expressed an interest in playing a musical instrument or joining a sport someday.

Ben is a bright boy with a great smile. While he can be quiet and shy, he isn’t afraid of letting you know when he doesn’t want to talk. Ben loves playing video games and UNO with other children and collects Pokémon cards (he has a whole binder of them). He loves watching scary movies. Ben does well academically and his favorite subject is physical education.

Marcus is an energetic young boy who is always smiling and quick to laugh. He definitely will not hesitate to let you know what’s on his mind. Whether it’s running circles around the house, tossing Frisbees and bouncy balls, playing video games, or playing a card game, Marcus is a very active child who bounces off the walls no matter what he is doing. He loves to watch scary movies with his brothers and playing games with them. Marcus is doing well academically and his favorite subject is math.

Little Anna is a playful little girl but may take some time to warm up to someone new. After getting to know you her personality and eagerness to explore really shines through. Anna is getting steadier on her feet, and while her words aren’t quite clear yet, she is working on it every day. She loves listening and dancing to “Cocomelon” and spending time with her siblings.

Patrick, Ben, Marcus, and Anna have strong connections with their birth family and it is important for them to maintain this relationship.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Patrick, Ben, Marcus, and Anna.

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.
