Kyra's Birth Certificate

So it has been asked several times what is the status of Kyra's adoption. Well here is the latest. Since Kyra was not born in an actual hospital, there was never a birth certificate issued. That being said when she was taken into the system the process started through the county of Fresno. Let's just say that things haven't gone smoothly through the county so the process has taken much, much longer. We are unable to legally adopt Kyra until the record of her birth is created since she didn't have one at birth. Her adoption hasn't been finalized because of this. We have been waiting a year for it.

Since the beginning Jake has been trying to get in touch with anybody and everybody at the CA Department office of Vital Records to check on the status of Kyra's birth certificate. He's been calling them every few months and they keep telling him "It's in process" whatever that means. LOL.

So...on to the good news. Today Jake placed another call to the CA Department office of Vital Records and guess what? The Rep said that Kyra's Birth Certificate was completed on October 29th and mailed to Fresno! The ball now lies in the hands of Fresno County to get the rest set up for the adoption hearing like Aiden's was in September. So hopefully we may have an adoption hearing within the next few months for Kyra so keep your thoughts and prayers for us that this goes as we are hoping.

On another awesome note - we got a postcard that let us know that Aiden's actual birth certificate with her new name and our names on it will be coming in the next 6 months. After that we will then be able to get her a new social security number and passport. Super exciting for that too!!! YAY!!!
