On November 18th, we had our court date in Texas for Ayana's re-adoption. In this proceeding, the state of Texas recognized the adoption we did in Ethiopia. She will be re-issued a new birth certificate and will have an official name change. It was a fairly easy process except for the fact that A wanted to keep grabbing the microphone and talking up a storm while the judge was trying to talk. What can I say, she is an active child. Anyway, we will now have the paperwork we need to file paperwork to take her from being a permanent resident to a US citizen and she will have all the privilege's that go with it. Rick thinks that she might need it so she can become president one day. :)
I am still amazed that Ayana is ours! What an amazing gift!
