My entire life I was led to believe that searching for my adopted mother was impossible. However, during the summer of 2012 I met a handful of adoptees like me who have been searching all their life and finally had success. Through Colombia Tu Pais they had found their roots in Colombia. It was only a couple of weeks later after contacting Gyna Hernandez that I too was reunited with my family. Gyna discovered that I had an older half sister and a younger half brother who all live in Bogota. On September 9th, my 27th birthday, I celebrated by seeing my mother for the first time over video chat. It was a gift that I will never forget, and it would not have been possible without Colombia Tu Pais. God Bless them!
