Link: COME TO BARKER'S 19TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE! The world of adoption is changing rapidly. For example, levels of openness have changed significantly; the internet is a game-changer in many areas of adoption; and the needs of older children and children with special needs who long for permanency are increasingly highlighted.
My journey toward adoption actually began almost 5 1/2 years ago when I decided that as a single, career military woman I was ready to settle down & have a family. Around March or April of 2010 I spoke with a friend & she suggested adoption. Initially, I did not think much of it until I began to watch “Adoption Stories” on TV. The more I watched, the more I thought about it.
The Barker Adoption Foundation welcomes adoption applications from couples and individuals of all religious and ethnic backgrounds, and all sexual orientations and gender expressions.
The Barker Adoption Foundation, with offices in Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C. is a nonprofit adoption agency. We support birth parents and their families, as well as adoptive parents and adoptees with lifelong adoption-related services.
