Hi, I just joined this group!  My husband and I are at the very beginning of our process to adopt a child from Colombia.  We’re attending an information session at our top-choice agency next week, so here’s hoping that it’s a good match for us so we can continue in the process!

In the meantime, I’m blogging about our preparations at

You posted this a year ago, so not sure where you are in the process now, but we adopted our now 5.5 year-old daughter from Colombia when she was 18 months old.  In fact, her 4th Gotcha Day party is in 1.5 weeks!  We started the process in the summer of 2008 and brought her home almost exactly 2 years later.  It sounds trite, but it’s so true - adopting Camila was the single best thing I have ever, ever done.  That’s not to say its all been roses - adjusting to parenthood was hard for me/us (going from no kids one day to a toddler the next is not for the faint of heart!), but she is truly a miracle!!  Anyway, your post brought me back to our early days together, and made me smile:)

Hello, I just joined. We are in the very beginning of the process as well.. trying to choose agencies. We are located in California. Any suggestions for agencies will be greatly appreciated.
