Barker's Homeland Tours offers a unique and life-changing experience for families who adopted children internationally.

These trips are highly enriching, yet they can also raise questions and unexpected emotions for both the child and the adoptive parents. Did you know that Barker offers consultation to adoptive families before taking a homeland trip? Our adoption competent therapists provide support to assist parents in exploring their child’s and their aspirations, apprehensions, and expectations for the trip and help strategize with families about how to best maximize their trip experience. Contact Katie Ambush at our office at 301-664-9664 to learn more!
