As many of you have heard, Barker’s Bethesda offices were recently severely damaged by a freak flood that occurred when pipes, located several floors above Barker, burst, triggering the sprinkler system and unleashing tons of water into the Barker space below.
The Barker Adoption Foundation is proud to be the gold sponsor for the upcoming Adoption and Foster Care Expo being held on Saturday, December 5th from 11am to 3pm at the Carnegie Library - 801 K St NW, Washington, DC 20001.
Our adoptive parents are thoroughly screened, prepared and excited to welcome a baby into their home through adoption.
Our names are Johnny and Leslie and we are thrilled to be growing our family through adoption. We have been married for 7 years and believe one of the greatest joys in life is to be parents. Four years ago we joyfully welcomed a son who was adopted into our family from birth. Our safe, loving home is filled with fun and laughter that awaits another child. We both are very involved parents and look forward to providing a lifetime of love and opportunity for a child to achieve the highest purpose that God has intended for them. Giggles and laughter will be a part of their everyday life. We are a fun, loving, and passionate couple who live in Silver Spring, MD, which we love because it is filled with great family-friendly play spaces, parks, restaurants, and beautiful libraries. We would consider ourselves blessed with a special gift if you chose us as the parents for your precious child. Your child will always know how much they are loved by you. Their adoption story will be an important part of who they are and we look forward to sharing this throughout their growing years. We look forward to sharing photos and letters with you so that you can see your child growing up loved, respected, and enjoying everything that life has to offer.
