I was wondering if anyone had any personal experience adopting a child from Peru or Ecuador, or other Latin American countries other than Guatemala? Nothing against Guatemala, of course, just that I've already encountered a few people who have adopted from there. We are at the very beginning stages of looking into international adoption and whilst I have already trawled the web for information, I was hoping to hear from anyone who had some personal experience to help guide us on our way. Thank you.

Besides Guatemala and Colombia there really isn't any other country that is often adopted from that I know of. I *think* there have been people who have adopted from Brazil, Ecuador and other areas but your going to have a harder time finding an agency if its not a popular program and you may have to do it on your own. Colombia looks fairly easy with the exception of you stay there 6 weeks or more and the youngest available is aroun 12-18 months old vs. in Guatemala you can go younger, although even that is changing.
