If anyone can help me begin my search, please do. I promised myself i would do this. i just want to know my ancestry. you may think i am just a youngin' but i am well aware of all the consequences of this and know how it could affect each family. i have discussed doing this since i was 11 years old. my family supports me. i have known i was adopted since i was 4 years old..
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:

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 and good luck.

Thumbs up Me Too


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.
