Whether you have worked through grief associated infertility, or you are now able to legally marry your partner (about time!), your decision to build your family through adoption has already been a journey. Domestic Infant Adoption organizations are numerous, and a quick Google search can produce an overwhelming amount of options. With 70 years of domestic adoption experience, the Barker Adoption Foundation can help you find a reputable agency that meets your needs. Here are some key factors to consider as you begin.
Our adoptive parents are thoroughly screened, prepared and excited to welcome a baby into their home through adoption.
Hi there, we are Rachel and Eliza, and we can't wait to welcome your child into our home alongside our two cats and silly dog. We met in college over 11 years ago, and have been married for six years. We have moved all around the east coast together and are so happy to finally be settled down in a diverse and walkable neighborhood in Washington, DC. We are fortunate to be working at jobs that we are passionate about and living in our own little rowhouse with family and friends nearby. We love spending time outdoors and around the water, cooking and eating great food, traveling to see friends and family and new places, and just lying in the grass and telling stories. As a same-sex couple, we have always known that we would need to carefully consider how and when to build our family. As we learned more about adoption, we knew that it was the right choice for us. If it’s the right choice for you, know that with us your child will be deeply loved and will be taught above all else to be kind and loving in the world. We wish you all the best in your journey.
