Meet Vanessa! She tends to be a little quiet and reserved when you first meet her, but as she warms up and gets to know you, you’ll learn that she’s very affectionate. She enjoys listening to the radio with her headset on. Not only is this a favorite past time for Vanessa, but is also serves as a coping skill when she feels overwhelmed. Her favorite station to listen to is the country music station. She also loves the movie “Frozen” and enjoys watching music videos on YouTube.

She gets along well with younger children and pets, and has been described as being helpful and “a joy” around the house.

Vanessa is currently a senior in high school and participates in the Life Skills program. Though she’s not a big fan of science, she does enjoy math. She hopes to attend a vocational school after high school to learn a skill and obtain employment. She enjoys attending church. She looks forward to being with a family she can do activities within the community. She has siblings she would want to remain in contact with.

Vanessa is free for adoption. To learn more about he, please have your family worker reach out to her recruiter, April, at or call the SWAN Helpline at 1.800.585.SWAN.

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.
