Fini…well, sort of

August 20, 2007 at 2:38 pm | Posted in Adoption Updates | 1 Comment

We received a call from our adoption attorney today to let us know that our adoption of Henry has been finalized in the court system.  That means officially we are a family.  And although it is part of the end of a long process it is also the beginning of another paper chase to round out all the documents we need to declare Henry a US citizen.  This includes his birth certificate, a social security number and a certificate of citizenship.  Until this is completed he is considered a resident alien.  We’re not sure how long it will take us to really be done with all the paperwork necessary to declare Henry a US citizen but hopefully it will be before he starts school (just a joke indicative of the slow, slow, slow process of governmental paper pushers).
