Barker Adoption Hispanic Family partyThis past Sunday, after a long, post-blizzard week, 70 members of the Barker community -- including many toddlers and young children -- attended Barker's Hispanic Heritage Celebration, held at Los Tios Grill in Alexandria, Virginia.  Adoptive families had a chance to meet other families with children of Hispanic heritage, enjoy Tex-Mex/Salvadorean food, learn salsa dancing (led by Barker pregnancy counselor, Bianchi Suarez), engage in art projects and enjoy, and dance along with, a captivating performance by family-friendly, Latin Grammy nominee, 123 Andrés.

Thanks to all who came out for this memorable event!
