Every child has the right to a family. 

Please take a moment to look at the children's information below that are currently in need of a family of their own.  

When The Barker Adoption Foundation receives files of children for placement, we are able to match the majority of those files with families we already have in process. Those children’s information never appears on our website. The children listed below are those that, due to their age or need, we do not currently have a family for. These children are all from China unless otherwise noted.

For more information please contact bbetz@barkerfoundation.org
