Sometimes families seeking to adopt through other agencies—especially those located at some distance—need local support from an agency like COBYS. On a fee-for-service basis we provide home studies for such families prior to their adoption and post placement supervision after the adoption is finalized. Here is the fee schedule for these services. Contact us for more information about these services.
Infertility led us to consider other avenues for growing our family. We decided to choose foster care because it is not about us and our desire, but it is about caring for the needs of a child and his/her biological family. Considering the statistics of how many children in Pennsylvania need loving homes, we are motivated to do our small part in changing those numbers. – COBYS Resource Parent Laura
