Meet three brothers who will charm your socks off: Ray, Peter, and Egon!
Ray is the oldest and is a quiet and polite young man who enjoys reading, especially the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series of books, as well as playing video games. He enjoys going to school and particularly enjoys language arts and science classes. People describe him as polite and well-mannered and while he interacts well with others, he also enjoys his alone time. There are many things he’s never done that most kids his age have, and he’s eager to experience some of these firsts with his new family: he’s never gone camping or fishing, but would like to try them some time; he’s also never seen a Santa, gone sled riding, or built a snowman, but would love to do all of these things. He and his brothers would do best with a family who enjoys doing things together and offer him a chance to try to do many of the things that he wants to try. He’s protective of his little brothers and they want to be placed together.
Next up is Peter, an energetic and engaging boy who loves to talk and will talk your ear off—especially if it’s about “Ghostbusters,” his absolute favorite movie (he even received a Ghostbusters costume for Christmas!). Like most kids his age, he’s got a ton of energy and is constantly moving! There’s so much that he wants to see and do that, sometimes, it’s very hard for him to sit still (although he’s described as accepting redirection well). He’s not a picky eater… in fact, unlike most kids his age, he loves broccoli, lettuce, and crackers. Like his older brother, he’s never seen Santa Claus (not even in the mall), but said that one day he will. He loves his brothers, and is looking forward to being in a forever family with them.
Last, but in no way least, is Egon, who often starts out shy, but can be very affectionate when he gets to know you. He’s proud of the progress he’s making with his speech and general knowledge. He enjoys coloring and showing off his finished art. He’s described as being very laid-back and easy-going, particularly for his age. He’s also hoping to see Santa and experience many other “firsts” with his brothers in a forever family. He adores his older brothers and the feeling is mutual from them.
Parental rights have not been terminated for Ray, Peter and Egon.

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.
