Well, Natalia is almost 6 now (May 28) and we’ve had a very smooth adaptation process. We prepared a lot to adopt a toddler and had some fears because her file said that she was very attached to her foster mom (she lived with her for seven months prior referal). At the very beggining I felt unconfortable because our kid was very sociable (hugged even people she didn’t know) and I suspected she might have attachment problems, but time proved I was wrong. We followed up every recommendation made by social workers and psicological teams in Colombia (including extending bottle feeding after adoption, keeping mostly intact her daily routine, not hanging out with extended family and friends for six months, etc) . For us it has been easy because both of us (husband and myself) are latinos, already had a kid in the family (bio-son who is only 26 mo appart from his sister) and Spanish is our first language. Some friends of mine that have also adopted from Colombia, including billingual families, had told me that they have experienced some problems with English acquisition and proficiency, particularly when the kids are developing writting and reading skills. We have been blessed with a very loving intelligent girl. Ask whatever you want to know.
