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.
We have two biological daughters and felt we have the space and the interest to have more children. Jesus tells us to open our homes to those who need it. We are currently fostering to adopt two little boys. This opportunity has blessed our family. It has been amazing to watch all four children grow physically, and how they have grown in their love for each other. – COBYS Resource Parent Monica
