Certificate of Citizenship~

The Certificate of Citizenship (Form N-560 or N-561) is a document issued by the US government as proof of U.S. citizenship. An individual, who obtained U.S. citizenship either by action of law while residing in the United States or by having been born outside the United States to U.S. citizen parents, has the right to apply for a U.S. Certificate of Citizenship. 

That's the official description...
To us it is the official document needed for the readoption process,
to request a foreign born birth certificate,
to get a US passport,
and the most important document given to WP proving he is a US Citizen as soon as his feet hit US soil on November 19, 2011.

What is this Mom?
 SO happy to finally have this in my hands~
 Let me make sure I like my photo~
 I like it SO much, I think I will pick it off~
Yikes... give me that document boy! LOL
All in all, SO thankful to have this 
so we can move on to the next paperwork step on the list. 
Yay WP~ officially a US citizen! :)
