More About The Program

Expand your community. Join other adoptive families for Sunday Mornings at Barker!

Sunday morning gatherings of adoptive parents and their children (infant to 6 years old) for fun, family time, and connection with Barker and other families. Our goal is to offer an opportunity for play, foster connection, encourage a sense of community among younger Barker families, and provide an informal forum for families to ask questions or solicit advice from Post-Adoption staff.
