Any intercountry adoptive parents here? Hubby & I have 1 bio. son, but have ALWAYS planned to adopt, hopefully from Bolivia.

Hi We have 2 kids and adopted internationally from Russia. My kids were 8 and 4 when we did it. Our adopted son was 7 when we brought him back. I don't suggest older child adoptions. I don't want to be negative, but really consider things and explore issues that could arrise. Our son has FAS and we didn't know - you can't see it physically. He left us when he was 14 and is now 19. We have no contact with him and it's left a void. Let me know if you want to know more - I'm more than happy to openly talk about it.
