There are thousands of children throughout the United States awaiting their forever family. Right here in Pennsylvania, there are over 3,000 children within the child welfare system that are waiting for a permanent family to call their own.
These children range in age from infant to 18 years, although many of them are older children who have been in the foster care system for an extended period of time. Many of these children have suffered from abuse or neglect, and may be part of a minority group or a siblings group. To be eligible for adoption, the biological parents of the available children have terminated, or are in the process of terminating, their parental rights. While they may have gotten off to a rough start in life, these children will thrive in a stable and loving family environment.
