I am still doing adoption paper work one year later.
In the state of Alabama, you have to apply through your local courthouse to re-adopt. The re-adoption will then allow us to get Maggie an Alabama birth certificate.
Personally, I think it is crazy to have to re-adopt my child that is fully adopted and fully my child. Crazy !!!
But, since I am at the mercy of this insane governmental laws right now, I spent most of the day yesterday doing paperwork and gathering the necessary forms so that we can re- adopt our already adopted daughter.
I was told you don't have to have a lawyer in order to re adopt in Alabama. So, I just did all the work myself.
I figure if I can put a Dossier together for China, I can fill out a couple of forms. And I did. It was pretty easy and the clerk at the courthouse said it looked fine. So, I am not sure why some people use a lawyer and spend hundreds of dollars ? Let's pray I did everything right and we will not have to hire a lawyer.
Now for some pictures. Merry Christmas !
