Today we filed Miss Kambry Hope's Petition for Adoption with the Court. See, even though adoptions are final when both parents travel to China, we must re-finalize within our state to legally change the child's name and acquire a US birth certificate or Certificate of Foreign Birth, showing us as her parents (so cool!). The law in our state requires she reside here six months before filing the Petition. So within the next few weeks we'll have the hearing and the Court will issue the Decree of Adoption. She's a Johnson through and through, but this will make it official!
