Hi - I'm not sure what help I can give, but I'm also an adoptee from Bogota. Anyway, the orphanage is called Los Pisingos (I was adopted from there too - 1979) - here is a link to their foundation - http://www.lospisingos.com/ - I am trying a search as well - please feel free to email me.

thank you for your help

Hola Carlos,

I am the board moderator and the mom of 2 Colombian adults. My younger son was adopted from Los Pisingos, like you. He is reunited with both birth parents. On the Los Pisingos web page you should be able to find an email contact. Send them an email and ask what the procedure is for obtaining identifying information on your birth parents. My son's birth mother and cedula number, as well as her address at the time, were on the documents we were given in order to obtain a visa for our son. Check with your parents, they may well have the information you need.

Remember too, the country of Colombia is Colombia, not Columbia.

I, too was adopted from Bogota....in 1954...birthday unknown...about end of Jan / beginning of Feb. No name, no exact birthday....from an orphanage called CASA DE LOS NINOS, in Bogota. My adoptive parents' surname was Reckendorf. I wa 6 months old when I left Colombia and went to the Canal Zone to live....for most of the next 33 years. I now live in Seattle , Wa. Looking for any info on how else to search for relatives in Colombia. Yo hablo espanol tambien. Not perfect , but enough to communicate.

Thank you,
