This past Saturday Barker once again celebrated National Adoption Day by hosting story time at the Bethesda, Maryland location of Barnes & Noble.  The crowd of enthusiastic Barker families and supporters was a wonderful sight to behold.  The audience enjoyed stories read by several special guests.  Big sister Jenny began, reading to her younger sibling, Ava, who was also celebrating her birthday that day.  Dad Brent followed, reading to his sweet daughter, Aoife.  We finished with Joy, a lovely young lady who shared her favorite adoption-related book with the crowd.  

The fun continued down the street as a number of Barker families enjoyed brunch at Café Deluxe while raising funds for Barker.

Thanks to all who came out last Saturday.  We look forward to continuing the tradition next National Adoption Day!
