The Statewide Adoption and Permanency Network (SWAN) reports that approximately 2,500 Pennsylvania children are waiting for adoption. While some of these children will be adopted by their current foster parents, many others are legally free for adoption but do not have an identified permanent home. These children often are called “waiting children.” COBYS adoption staff seek homes for such children through a service called Child Specific Recruitment. From time to time we feature children on this page who need an adoptive home.
When adoption becomes an option, we are more than willing to step in and become a forever family for the child. When God calls us to steward another one of his precious children, we gladly step in to help show him/her a life devoted to Jesus Christ. – COBYS Resource Parents Joel and Jaclyn
