We are official.
Colombia issued a documented, official match of “John Vander Veen” and “Suzanne Martin” (names always get goofed up) with one Diego.
With international adoption, you have papers that spawn papers that then spawn their own papers. Renee is incredible at tracking all of them (and this time around we’ve leveraged a bit of the power of Google as well). This paper, the official match paper, contains the jackpot of information future parents want (history, medical, etc.).
For us it’s a somewhat cool and interesting experience to get an updated glimpse of a family some 3 years after adopting the girls.
Here’s Little Ds picture.
