We have a Passport
US passport, that is. For those of you who are getting close to bringing your little one home, the process is completely painless:
•Social Security Card – didn’t have to do anything, arrived in the mail just a few days after landing in the US
•Citizenship Certificate – again, didn’t have to do anything, arrived about a month after we landed
•US Passport – We were told it takes 6 to 8 weeks but actually, it took about 4 weeks for us. Note that both parents have to be present when you are applying. The original adoption and citizenship certificate have to be sent with the application which was a bit scary but we get them back about a week before the passport arrived.
