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.

This free community event will provide an exclusive "one-stop-shop" opportunity for prospective adoptive parents to meet adoption professionals and hear directly from current adoptive and foster parents. Experts in international adoption, domestic infant adoption, foster-adoption, foster parenting, mentoring, and post placement support services will share advice with families through workshops, parent cafes and exhibits.

With over 100,000 children awaiting adoption in the US foster care system and thousands more awaiting adoption internationally, there is a constant need for committed and loving adoptive families.  Don't miss this unique opportunity to learn more about adoption.
