Marcia Engel: "So much trouble to find my own parents . For a right that every child - the right to contact his parents . I figured the spot : this has to change , I 'm going to help people. And this goes beyond the search for relatives. I want to make people aware of their rights and opportunities.”

New review adoptee!

I was adopted from Bogota Colombia FANA. I was born in Bucaramnga, Santander.

I was a child with so many thoughts and questions. It took me a while to learn and realize that all adoptees handle their feelings diffrently about their adoption. I was one that struggled with my feelings and thoughts , which made me act out as a kid.It was hard to ask for help and let someone know what I was feeling. Almost feels like you are alone. When I grew up and life took charge I knew I had to puit it on the back burner and continue life, it wasnt the first thing on my mind every day but how i felt about it never went away.

Maybe its true when they say once you stop looking it will come to you. Well through Plan Angel reaching out to me after I posted a few years back a forum on everything i knew about my adoption story, names, loctions anything i knew, well my prayers have been answered this has been a month of all different types of feelings excited, scared, sad emotional, happy shocked .... I was able to get information and in the works now of being in contact with my birth family.

All I can say is this orginazation is amazing and so supportive. Im glad it came to me when i was grown and married with support in my life to get this information. Thank you Marcia I dont think you will ever understand how greatful I am. You will always be like family to me .
