A new American Citizen

Little Miss American Citizen

So this afternoon we went down to the county courthouse to make it official a second time, or at least get a US birth certificate! Phoebe R Collingham is officially a US citizen, not yet at USCIS until we apply for her certificate of citizenship, whatever happened to if your parents are US citizens and you are officially theirs, you are automatically a US citizen regardless of where you are born? Oh, of course, the government wants more money...oh well, in less than 45 minutes we were in and out of there! Glad to have that checked off. Yeah, Phoebe!!!
I thought this sign was funny for an adoption court...
don't you dare put that flower on me!
guess it isn't that bad
Even Michael had a part of it!
hmmm, this looks familiar...
Thank you, Judge Borene!

Yeah, Phoebe! Her flower is adorable! I hear you on the expensive piece of paper that says they are a citizen! We re-adopted AP last winter, but still haven't shelled out the cash for the piece of paper.

YEA!!! What a relief for it to be over! And I am totally diggin' the flower (and the sign). I was just telling D this week that I need to apply for Scarlett's passport so I can get her SSN. I need to get Alex a passport too. We're thinking Disney cruise next year...you up for it?!

CONGRATULATIONS!

You guys are way faster than us as I am dragging my feet on the paperwork. Now you've motivated me to get going!

So happy to hear that you've jumped through this hurdle!
