A special piece of mail

I’m officially official 🙂

Owen’s Certificate of Citizenship {CoC} came in the mail today! WHOOP! Though he became a U.S. Citizen on August 5, 2016 when he stepped foot on U.S. soil in Seattle, WA, receiving his CoC gives us the documentation to support it.

It also means that we can now go to the Social Security Office to get his name corrected on his social security card, then go through the readoption process in Georgia, and finally get his U.S. passport {you never know when you want to travel abroad, so best to have it….right?}

Looking beyond the additional paperwork that receiving his CoC brings, I cannot help but to smile when I compare the little boy in the passport sized photo and the one holding the certificate. His hair is so much thicker, his face & belly more plump, and the giggle that you cannot hear from behind the certificate is simply heart-warming.
