  1. Hi Sara and Micah,

    I have so enjoyed reading your blog. My husband and I are U.S. citizens who love CR so much we moved here. I am an autism researcher and do a lot of intervention work and he is a journalist. We speak Spanish and just love the culture. We’ve long wanted to adopt, but have been turned off by the prospect of domestic newborn adoption for a variety of reasons. Since we live here, it recently occurred to us that we would have a much easier time adopting a child who is here in CR rather than trying to adopt from the U.S. We are really liking the prospect of adopting an older child in particular – someone we can get to know and support much in the same way you’re learning about your three. We just have this feeling that our child is already “here” and we don’t want to go through the process of all the newborn adoption risks (although we’re fully aware there are risks in this route – they’re just risks we feel more comfortable with on the whole). Anyway, I’m rambling.

    The reason I write is that I’m hoping you could give us some of the details on your CR attorney and social worker. We have been interviewing a few agencies for placement (we have our home study agency under control) but we’re torn between going with an agency to place the child and going with a private attorney here in CR. Any recommendations would be super helpful to us!

    Keep up the blog – it is so fun to hear about your beautiful family! Buena suerte 🙂

    Kylan & Robert
