Meet Betty and Bobby whom are two, healthy, friendly, and intelligent children.

Betty is a stylish, young lady who always strives to look her best. Betty is resourceful and independent. She can be guarded upon first meeting her, but when she gets to know you she is very open and pleasant. Betty is good at understanding new technology, especially, computers and smart phones. She is taking regular classes at school and is doing very well. Betty likes to play board games, and sports, especially, swimming.

Bobby is very active. He is always thinking of new challenges to conquer and has a very competitive spirit. He would love a kind family who would dare to test his strength at these challenges and share similar interests as him. People who know him best say he is a fun guy who is curious and bright with a smile that can put anyone in a good mood. Bobby loves to read, play and watch football, play board games, and swim.

Betty and Bobby are not yet legally free for adoption. It is important to them that they are placed together.
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.
