Two015 adopting -maybe columbia?


hi, i’m a 52yo single mom with a 10yo girl (adopted from guatemala as an infant).  i’m exploring the idea of adopting an older girl (7-9yo).  my first thought was central or south america.  has anyone in this group adopted recently?  do you have any advice about agencies and countries?  thanks GB

If you are interested in Colombia, there is a list of U.S. licensed, Hague accredited, and Colombia approved agencies on the ICBF website.

Just know there will be attachment issues and be prepared to deal with them. Also since many kids in Colombia are institutionalized there will be issues with this too. We adopted 4 older girls from Colombia and have had to deal with many issues. Good Luck.
