Adoption, Cate

Re-Adoption Day!

We officially re-adopted Cate!  This process is necessary for her to obtain a U.S. birth certificate.  We feel this is important so that in the future there is no question about her citizenship.  We asked the older kids if they wanted to come this time.  Our middle schoolers have some big responsibilities at school, and they’ve done this many a time.  We wanted to give them a choice on whether or not to be there.  Our question was greeted with a huge “OF COURSE WE’RE COMING!”

So, we all went to court.
