My husband and I spent 5 wonderful weeks in Colombia getting to know our little girl, Nina. We had the best time and couldn't be happier! She's going to be 6 months old tomorrow and we're scheduled to have some pictures taken. :) We've been home almost 2 weeks now and I'm already thinking about going back to adopt another! I can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was in Colombia! Everyone from the adoption home to the hotel staff to the state-side agency staff was just wonderful!

If I'm successful at this (don't count on it...I'm not the computer savvy one in our marriage) you'll see a picture of Nina in her Halloween costume her aunt bought her. We got back just in time for her to use it!

Thanks to everyone for all the support this board supplies!

Congratulations! I'm so happy for you, and your daughter is beautiful. :)

Incidentally, my cousin adopted a child from Colombia as well. Were you able to stay primarily in Bogota, or did you travel outside of the capital to take custody?

The adoption home we went through was in Bogota, so we didn't have to travel anywhere else. However, next time (oh yes, I'm already planning to go back for baby #2!) we're hoping to take a little trip to the coast while we wait for the court process. A few families did that while we were down there and they really enjoyed it.

Congratulations! My first and immediate thought upon opening the picture - Isn't she adorable?!! You have a beautiful little girl.
I'm glad to hear things went so great for your family.

!Que chula!

MIL from Colombia and we have a lot of family there, DH's family. I showed him the photo and he just held the laptop for a while admiring little Nina. God truly blessed you and your family.

We recently discussed adoption as a possibility for us. What advice can you offer people just getting started in this process? We would like to adopt from either Colombia or Ecuador.

Thanks and Congrats.
