Final Decree of Adoption

With abosolutely no fanfare we received Little T's Final Decree of Adoption.  Some states or even counties have you go into the judges chambers and have a nice little ceremony but not here.  *sigh*  Oh well, Little T has been adopted by both of us now and in a few days we should get information about getting her BC.   Then we'll take on the SS office and get her SS card.

Awesome! What wonderful news. FYI, you don't need her BC to get the SS Number in her name. We just brought Sofia's Certificate of Citizenship to the office and they issued her SS card to us with her adopted name. I also thought I had to wait, but didn't. They just had to mail the COC back with the SS Card. Good luck, let me know if you have any questions.

Hugs,
Jonni

Plus, you may want to do this fast, you will need it for the tax adoption credit when you do your taxes. It takes about a week or two to get it in the mail. We went to the SS office to do it all.
