- We are now legally their parents as opposed to guardians
- Name change
- They can now obtain US birth certificates
- We can apply for a Certificate of Citizenship (COC)
It seems odd but we also found out that even children who are adopted and come to the states on a US passport also have to re-adopt in the states in order to get a US birth certificate. That may vary by state but was still very interesting to find out that information!
Regardless of what the process continues to be, we're thrilled to be able to finalize today and thankful for all the amazing people who have encouraged us and helped us get to this point.
We had a very kind judge today, Malakai gave him a big hug it was precious!
Little flashback to court in UG and kids running around (thankfully this time it was BEFORE the judge came in)
