This past Sunday was Barker Family & Friends Night at Crave Restaurant in Bethesda. We had several staff members, board members and families come out to show their support for the Barker community and the CRAVE Cares Partnership. It was a great night!
The Barker Adoption Foundation’s signature educational event, its Adoption and Foster Care Conference, is sought out annually by families, adopted persons, birth parents, professionals and students.
Our local Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC adoptive parents are thoroughly screened, prepared and excited to welcome your baby into their home through adoption.
First and foremost, please know that we have profound respect for you and the decision you are considering. We come to adoption open-hearted, with respect, recognition, and appreciation for the amazing love you have, and will always have, for your child. Throughout our life together (and before we even met and married), we’ve dreamed of building our family through adoption and we believe that we have much to offer a child through all stages of life. Our home is full of love, laughter, amazing people, good food, books, and the loving snuggles of our sweet dog. Originally from California, Jade loves to read, paint, cook, and volunteer for a hospice program. Originally from Alabama, Willie loves reading, hiking, playing several instruments, and tinkering in his workshop. Our amazing family includes many loved ones locally, and everyone joins us in being so excited to shower our child with limitless love and support. Our child will be loved unconditionally and raised in a family that values individuality, kindness, curiosity, integrity, creativity, responsibility, and education. We cannot wait to explore and enjoy the delights of this world with our child and look forward to bringing them a lifetime of love, joy, and comfort.
