Nevaeh is an intelligent and creative girl who is shy and often described as preoccupied with her thoughts. She likes having a “calm down” room because it is unobtrusive and a safe place to process her thoughts and feelings. Once she gets through her morning routine, her personality begins to shine through. One area in which her creativity is brought to the forefront is through weekly participation in a local Broadway Cabaret theater group for children. Although she enjoys visits with her siblings, she is searching for her niche as the middle child.
Tariq is an active, inquisitive, and affectionate little boy. He is expressive and honest about his emotions, often revealing them with a high level of animation, and he has a huge and loving heart. Tariq loves doing puzzles and playing matching games; he completes them quite fast and with ease! He often has difficulty sharing, but can be easily redirected. He is making great strides in understanding and responding to the changes in his life. He is very attached to his oldest siblings and misses them terribly, especially his older brother.
Dez-Shanay is a happy and active little girl who loves attention. She is silly and a joy to be around. She is very independent and her speech and vocabulary are advanced for her age. She verbalizes her wants and needs, however, as with most toddlers, the word “no” causes a variety of reactions and challenges as she strives to discover and assert her independence. Dez-Shanay is at a great stage in life where she is easily impressed by her siblings – observing and mimicking their every move.
Nevaeh, Tariq, and Dez-Shanay share a close bond with their additional siblings, however a family is being sought for these three together. In order to maintain the ongoing relationship and to support the strong bond that exists with all of the siblings, any family considering these three children must be committed to coordinating and accommodating regular visits with the additional siblings who live in southeast Pennsylvania. Nevaeh, Tariq, and Dez-Shanay are 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.
