Searching adoption.


Hello!

My husband and I are considering adopting from Colombia. We just started with all the research. I am a Colombian national so I understand the process is different. I just want to hear from some families who have gone through the process or are beginning. We don’t know what angency to use or go directly to colombia. We just want some guidance. Any information would be great.

Hi. We are in Colombia right now and about to receive our second baby boy. We are a Colombian National family. We started back in July 2016 with all the paperwork. Our agency is Adoption By Shepherd Care. They have two locations, one near Orlando and one in Hollywood, FL. We have used them both times.

We are in Wisconsin and in the process. We just completed our home study with the age range from 0-5 because we are a heritage family. We are definitely are experiencing the Up’s and downs of the process. Our agency just changed our wait time to 3 years. Anyone with any advice or wait time information, that would be extremely helpful. Right now, we are ready to bail on the entire idea.

The agency didn’t change the wait time for no reason. Ask them what happened. Is the country allowing fewer adoptions? Are they understaffed? Are there new immigration rules? Quotas from that country?

3 years will pass if that is what it takes. At the end you will either be the parents of an adopted child or three years will pass and since you withdrew you will not be. It is up to you but I would ask what happened.

What agency are you using?  We just started the process and will be a heritage family too.  I can’t believe it would actually be three years.
