My name is Romy, I’m 20 years old, I was born in Colombia and I was adopted on 2018. Since I got adopted my life has changed a lot. Adoption has give me the opportunity to grow, to learn, and to experience what is like to have a family.
I had grown not only physically but emotionally. I trust people more, I feel happy, and I’m myself. Things like a buenas noches kiss or a breakfast with my family had help me feel comfortable and welcome in a environment that was new for me. I had learn appreciate things and people who made adoption possible. Because of adoption I will have a better future, a better education and a better lifestyle. Adoption has affected me and my family in a positive way, my parents learned about our culture to make us feel like in home and comfortable, and we learned about their culture to get used to this new life. The last thing I want to say is if you have the opportunity to adopt you should do it, it’ll change your life and you will change the life of the kids you adopt. ‘
