Carlos Lopez, Guadalajara: Anyone have experience?
- Has anyone had any recent experience (good or bad) with Carlos Lopez
of Lopez & Lopez associates?
They arrange private adoptions out of Guadalajara, Mexico, matching
families directly to birthmothers. He works with Universal Family
Services, I believe, although we live in Mexico so don't need the
We're considering using him for our adoption but want to know what
other people's experiences have been.
This group was founded by Long Island based clients of Carlos and he is a
subscriber. So you should hear from many people who used him. Some had
good experiences and others did not. Whether that was because of Carlos or
because of the uncertainties of the system in Mexico and with the US
authorities is the real question.
There was a story about 19 year old twins from Mexico, a year or two ago in
either the NY Times or NY Newsday. One was adopted by a Long Island
Catholic Family and the other by a NYC Jewish Family. They were reunited by
someone who had contact with both girls and one of the TV newsmagazines (48
Hours, Dateline or 20/20) did a story where they brought them to Mexico and
they met up with Carlos. The TV program located their birth mother in CA
and reunited the twins with her. The birth mother did not have kind words
for Carlos, although he denied any wrongdoing. 20 year old memeories in two
different people are bound to be different.
