Waiting Children

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.

 


Oh, my word, the support from everyone was outstanding. COBYS staff genuinely care about what they are doing and genuinely care for their resource families. Every person we dealt was wonderful, kind – I could write a lot about all the support we have gotten through this process! 🙂 – COBYS Resource Parents Jeremy and Nicole
