LEOLA,PA. - In Pennsylvania, there are approximately 2,500 children waiting to be adopted according to Cobys Family Services in Leola. Cobys is a family service agency that offers foster and adoptive services to families. Furthermore, once a family adopts, the organization offers free support to adoptive families. November is National Adoption Month. There is a need for families willing to foster and/or adopt.

"We definitely want families to know that they're not in this or on their own. There's lots of people who will be supporting them and that's a big part of what we do at Cobys," said Jen McDowell, adoption supervisor.

The first step for any interested family is to attend an information session. The next one will be held December 6. For more visit their website.
