I agree with Linda that you need to find out first any special wording required by Ecuadoran law. Our Power of Attorney form may not be sufficient. But once you have signed and notarized the Power of Attorney there is special process for authenticating documents to be used in a foreign court. You must get an Apostille which is basically a seal authenticating that the notary was valid. It is the same process a prospective adoptive parent goes through to get their documents authenticated before submitting them to them to the foreign court to adopt a child. I used to be Executive Director of an International Adoption Agency (and I'm also an adoptive parent) so I am very familiar with the process.
