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.

 


The excitement that we can have a part in changing eternity for both a child and his/her parents is hard to beat! Helping them through difficult times and encouraging them to be all that God called them to be has been thrilling. – COBYS Resource Parents
