November 16th - Re-Adoption Day

November 16th, 2011 - Ryland's Re-Adoption Day

Top 4 Reasons to Re-Adopt
1. A Legal & Binding U.S. Birth Certificate
2. A Legal Name Change Can Be Completed
3. Not all U.S. States Will Recognize a Foreign Adoption Decree
4. Re-Adoption is Another Reason to Have a Party!

You know us, we love any reason to celebrate our family!  So we ventured out early this morning to Fort Worth for our hearing.  Our hearing was quick and painless.  There were 2 other families there at the same time doing their re-adoptions and it made for a cool experience.  My Dad and Dustin's parents were able to go to the hearing with us and it was nice to have them there with us.  We were able to video the experience and take some pictures.  Don't mind the quality...all we had were iPhones...(hint, hint Dust)
