The Matching Process for Domestic Infant Adoption 

The Matching Process for Domestic Infant Adoption 


Untitled design (10).pngMy Role:

Working as a pregnancy counselor and clinical support specialist for our waiting families, I am tasked with a unique and fulfilling responsibility.  I work with the birth parents to help bring their adoption plan to fruition, and that includes showing them the profile books that our waiting families have created. I also support our waiting families as they prepare to be matched, during their match, and during the post-adoption interactions with the birth families.

More Than a Service: Love & Support From Cradle Care Mothers

So much conversation about adoption centers around adoptive parents, birth parents, and the children who are adopted, but there is one group that often goes unnoticed – the families that tirelessly care for babies during the time when the biological mothers and fathers of the babies are trying to decide what is best for their child. This group of amazing individuals are Barker’s Cradle Care families, and we could not be more grateful for the selfless work that they do.
