    hi! I found your website on We live in MO also! We’re not far from Spfd. We have two children adopted from Colombia, a son in 2002 and a daughter in 2004. Our two are 6 and 4 now. We are waiting again, this time for a 2-4 year old from Colombia. What agency are you with? Our agency is (and was for the previous two) Children’s Home Society (Minnesota). There aren’t many Colombian adoptive families in MO (at least not near us) so it’s neat to find another family who chose Colombia.
