Varda Makovsky, Director of Family and Post-Adoption Services
I am very excited that Barker’s Department of Family and Post-Adoption Services is introducing the Barker Book Club for 2015/2016! We decided to create this forum because books are a great way to bring together people with common interests to share ideas and discuss issues of mutual interest and concern.  We have all been in the situation where we have just finished a great book which has raised thoughts and questions, and really want to “process” the contents, but did not have anybody else to share those thoughts with.

Little girls often engage in the common childhood pastime of pretending to be pregnant, but it would be a rare individual indeed who would ever dress-rehearse infertility as a future problem. Unless individuals have pre-existing medical problems, they assume they will easily conceive a child. Not only do they expect that starting a family will be easy, but some also utilize birth control methods to make certain that a baby's arrival will be conveniently planned and timed.
