Dhanayah is an intelligent and quiet young lady. She is very creative and artistic. She loves to draw and enjoys making storybooks and scrapbooks. Dhanayah cares deeply for her siblings, but often becomes very emotional, as she feels like she is responsible for their well-being. Some of her current favorite activities include going to school, riding horses, and learning about Amazonian animals. If Dhanayah could do anything in the future, she would like to become a marine biologist or she would like to adopt all of the unwanted animals in the world. She enjoys being active outside with her siblings, swimming, riding bikes, or playing basketball and soccer. With support and encouragement, Dhanayah is beginning to learn how to accept responsibility and make appropriate behavior choices so that she can learn positive coping strategies for the future.

Dhanayah shares a close bond with her siblings however, a family is being sought for her alone. In order to maintain the ongoing relationship and to support the strong bond that exists with the siblings, any family considering Dhanayah must be committed to coordinating and accommodating regular visits with the siblings who live in southeast Pennsylvania. Dhanayah is legally free for adoption.

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.
