Barker's 22nd Annual Adoption & Foster Care Conference: Connected Lives: A Complex Privilege for the Family of Adoption. The adoption landscape today is in a state of flux. We find striking permutations on the theme of adoptive parenting and on the role of birth parents. Yet no matter how many variations or rearrangements exist, one principle grows ever clearer through the lens of rigorous clinical research and the rich findings of clinical practice: connected lives usually redound to the health of the child of adoption.
Our local Maryland, Virginia and Washington, DC adoptive parents are thoroughly screened, prepared and excited to welcome your baby into their home through adoption.
Hello from Thoko, Jori, and Isaiah! We are a loving and playful family and are looking forward to having another child through adoption. We live in a diverse and beautiful neighborhood near the James River in Richmond, Virginia and have been married for 8 years. We are both doctors and met during our medical training. Thoko is from Malawi, Africa and Jori is from California, and we now have a beautiful home together in Virginia. We love to travel (all over the world), swim, go to the parks and zoo, and spend time with family and friends. Isaiah joined our family though adoption as a newborn in April 2014 and we are lucky to have a wonderful open relationship with his birth family. We have regular contact with them by phone and have visited several times. It is important to us that our children know their adoption stories. We know that this decision is as important to you as it is for us, and you will be celebrated and honored for your loving decision.
