Barker’s prospective adoptive families are a diverse group of individuals and couples who are ready and excited to lovingly welcome a child into their family.

All of our families are local (Maryland, Virginia, or Washington, D.C.), feel adoption is a wonderful way to create their family, and are extensively trained and thoroughly screened to make certain they can provide a nurturing, safe, and stable home. 

When expectant parents are at the point at which they wish to consider adoptive families, the pregnancy counselor helps to identify the qualities most important to expectant parents in the adoptive family they select. Then they will share a selection of family profile books created by families who may fit the criteria and the values that the expectant parents identified.
