thank you
Adopted from Bogota, Colombia
Hi Celeste,

Just came across your message about being adopted from Colombia and trying to find your birthmother. My husband and I have three children adopted from Colombia. There is a list you might be interested in called Colombian Adoptees Search and Support. The list is mostly for adoptees from Colombia and most are in their 20's. There are also a few adoptive parents on board. They may be able to help you. If you're interested, write to the list owner and ask how to subscribe at: ColombianAdopteeSearchandSupport-owner@yahoogroups.com

Good luck in your search!

Hi. My name is Kristen and I read your letter about being adopted from Bogota. I also was adopted from there but was born in Medellin. I am going throught he same struggles of finding my birth mother and sister but I do not have the same support from my family. I do not know all the information of my birth records so it is makin it very hard to further my search. I wish all the luck in the world because I know how hard it is to grow up in a culture that is not really your own. Please write me back and update me on how your search is going. YOu can always e-mail me at scgwoman@aol.com...thanks and good luck.

My name is John. I was born John Edwin (or Eduardo) Rodriguez on Sept. 28, 1979. My mother is Helena Rosa Rodriguez-Clavijo. I have never met her. I was adopted at age 2 by a wonderful American family. But, I am looking for my birth mother. I was born in the hospital San Juan de Dios in Socorro, Colombia. I was adopted from an orphanage in San Gil (Sand Hill), Colombia.

My goal is to meet my mother and find out who I am.

Good luck to those who are also trying to meet their parents. If anyone knows how I can find mine, please let me know.


Hi my name is Bridget. I was adopted from Bogota, Colombia when I was six months old 1987. My adoption is closed and was wondering if its possible to find my birth mom. I have her name and most information.. I have thought about trying this for along time... But I'm scared.. But I'd rather try and get nowhere then to never try and always have all these questions... Not sure how to tell my adoptive parents... Just don't know where to start. Anyone with info plz message me.
