Bo(Age 5)
Nick is a sweet, loving and caring boy. He is very bright and puts his best effort into his schoolwork, with his favorite subject being mathematics. He is a fast learner and always eager to learn or try new things. Nick enjoys playing outside, building with Legos, playing video games, and doing arts and craft activities. He gets along with children of all ages and is very respectful toward adults. He is eager to try new foods and is proud of himself when he finds new things he enjoys. Nick has a strong connection with his biological family. With this in mind, an adoptive home that is willing to maintain communication with Nick’s siblings would be best. He speaks very highly of his family and has many positive memories with them.

Bo is a happy boy who frequently has a smile on his face. He is currently in early intervention through Head Start and does well in school. He is described as happy, sweet, and plays well with others. He loves reading, coloring, playing with cars, and does well with animals. Bo would benefit from a family who is active and will take time to work with him. A family who is willing to maintain communication with his biological family would also be beneficial for Bo, due to strong family ties.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Nick and Bo.

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.
