Pregnant?  Welcome to Barker. We are here to listen and help.

Erica Seivright-Potts (MSW, LGSW), a pregnancy counselor at The Barker Adoption Foundation

If you or someone you care about is experiencing an unplanned pregnancy and you have come to this page, you are quite likely considering major life decisions. It takes tremendous courage to explore all of your pregnancy options, including adoption, for your baby, and inner strength to figure out what is truly best for you and your child. You are not alone. The Barker Adoption Foundation pregnancy counselors are here to listen and to help you navigate the decisions ahead. Our services are confidential and free of charge.   

Barker is a local nonprofit.  We counsel clients in the immediate DMV and across Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C. Should you decide to place your baby for adoption, your adoption would be in Maryland (MD), Virginia (VA) or Washington, D.C. (DC).  

We invite you to contact a Barker pregnancy counselor anytime, 24/7, to talk and find out more about your pregnancy options.
