In July and October of 2022, our organization worked closely with Madison Adoptions and the Central Authority of Colombia as we visited 16 foster homes and 8 high-risk orphanages. Our team was able to capture photos, videos, and detailed information about each child which we later shared with child welfare services in Colombia for distribution to the partnering adoption agencies. Shortly after returning home on July 7, our organization started advocating for these 43 orphans with the hope of finding a family for all of them. We have received hundreds of different inquiries requesting more information about adoption and we are happy to report that 11 of the children we visited now have committed families.
