Jack(Age 13)
Meet two amazing brothers, Jack and Grant!

Older brother Jack is a thoughtful and reserved young man who enjoys watching football and playing video games. He hopes to join a football team and play defense! He’s a great big brother, is protective of his younger brother, and generally acts mature for his age. While he likes spending time with his brother, especially outdoors, playing, he also enjoys his alone time.

Jack loves animals and is very kind to and good with them, especially dogs and cats. His favorite food is chicken wings and when asked about his favorite flavor, he noted that he liked many flavors, but barbeque was his favorite. He also likes different colors, but blue is probably his favorite and he chooses a blue shirt over a shirt of another color! While he can maybe come off shy and quiet, it’s better to characterize him as thoughtful in his responses and likes to take the time to think about what he will say next. It’s Important for him to maintain his connections with significant people in his life.

Younger brother Grant is an inquisitive and friendly young man with a thirst for knowledge… when he learns something new, he loves to share it with anyone who’ll listen! He enjoys reading books, especially if they are about sharks or dinosaurs. He loves to spend time with his older brother, and is always interested in what he has to say. Some of his favorite things to do include playing outside, but also enjoys playing video games on his Nintendo DS. Inside, he loves playing a LEGO Battles strategy game where he can build his own LEGO squad and battle other armies. And while other kids may hate Brussels sprouts, Grant loves them; definitely not a picky eater! Another meal that he loves is shepherd’s pie.

Grant is also very kind to animals and loves to play with dogs and cats. His favorite animals, however, are dinosaurs! He gets along well with other children, and is quick to strike up a conversation! It’s Important for him to maintain his connections with significant people in his life.

Parental rights have not been terminated for Jack and Grant.

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.
