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 love the idea of coming alongside of parents and children to help them attain the fullest potential in Christ Jesus. Stewarding these children is one tangible way we can show the love of Jesus to a darkened, unbelieving world. – COBYS Resource Parents Joel and Jaclyn
