I sent off the adoption paperwork to get the kids' new birth certificates sometime back and they arrived yesterday. Visualize: Happy Dance. Surprisingly there isn't much to them. It's basically their names, birth dates, my name and age at the time of their birth, and the city and county of their birth. Easy Peasy data entry right?
Someone completely left off the city and county of birth on Little Buddy's certificate. Zilch, zip, nada. They used my married name (instead of my maiden name) on both. I bet I could just fill in the blanks and make corrections with a Sharpie.. that'll fly at Social Security, right?
