America's Newest and Cutest Citizen


We went to court this morning for AP's re-adoption. Her adoption was final in Kyrg, but to become a citizen due to the type of visa she entered the US on she had to be re-adopted in TN. We were surprised that there were actually 3 families in our small county courthouse for adoptions this morning. It was pretty much a non-event, our attorney just had us verify our adoption process and affirm that we knew AP was our responsibility forever. The judge asked C if he wanted him to make her his sister and C said yes. He was a really nice judge, he posed for pics and asked us to send him one. Bye bye green card (even though it's not really green)!

Congratulations on our newest citizen. I do think she really MIGHT be the cutest one we have too. :-) What a cute dress she has. Email me at mblatham@charter.net and tell me where you are located. We are also north of the city.
