The final adoption process hurdle

On 13th April 2022, I psyched myself up to spend several hours at the Department of Home Affairs in Randburg.

The queue was long. I was prepared for the stand out in the sun and wait queue.

Thankfully I was blessed with Jaime’s new birth certificate. Abridged and Unabridged.

On the unabridged birth certificate it has her name and our names as her parents. A wonderful feeling. Five years and a couple months after she was first matched with us.
