Isaac Gets His Day in Court!
On Wednesday, September 27th, 2006, Isaac will be readopted in the state of Maine. Though he is already considered a US citizen and his adoption has been recognized by the United States, this readoption is necessary in order to change his name, secure his Social Security number and obtain a US passport. On this day his name will officially be changed from Watson Metellus to Isaac Watson Renshaw-Sirimoglu.
We are SO excited! This is the last time we have to petition the courts for anything related to Isaac's adoption. Hooray! (But we still have to endure 3 more home visits from a caseworker before he is considered completely "ours". Ugh!)
Anyway, for anyone interested in attending, we are going to celebrate this occassion with a visit to the Maine Discovery Museum and lunch at Portla's (both in downtown Bangor). The Superior Court proceeding is at 9am on Sept. 27 (Click HERE for directions). It should last about an hour (including pictures taken with the judge). Afterward we will walk over to the museum and then walk over to Portla's at lunchtime.
Admission to the museum is $5 per person and lunch at Portla's usually runs just $5 per person as well.
