This Chapter Ends . . .

Well . . . Almost.

After being parents to the boys for days over a year, these finally came . . .

Finally, AZ Birth Certificates! The final pieces of the paperchase received. Amazing, after 3 years of paperwork, it ends with something so simple.
Or so I thought.
At the bottom of each birth certificate is stamped:
"This Certificate is not evidence of U.S. Citizenship."
So - we have Naturalization Papers for the boys with their old first and last names, Birth Certificates with their new first and last names, and nothing that shows the two (sets) cover the same people.
A Phoenix police officer was killed over the weekend by an illegal alien from Mexico, driving drunk, with priors, no less, who most likely just sauntered across the border.

We move and shake for three years to do things legally to bring home boys that we're raising to be upright and productive citizens and yet this . . .
Am I missing something here?

  1. I sometimes worry what it will be like for my Guatemalan daughters once they are grown. At the rate it's going, because of the illegals, they will probably face all kinds of predjudice and persecution just because of the color of their skin.
    I don't know what the realistic answer is, but I have to trust that God will cover and help my girls.
