Adoption Paperwork: Safekeeping in Storms & Flooding

To all those affected by the flooding and storms plaguing the Midwest, America World would like to extend our sincerest sympathy and our continuous prayers. If you, or another family who is part of the America World community, have been affected, please let us know how we can specifically be lifting you up in prayer. Our staff would be honored to be able to encourage you and pray for you during this time.

In the midst of these natural disasters, we wanted to remind all families to be mindful about how you are storing important adoption-related paperwork and ensuring that your child’s adoption is fully recognized in the domestic courts. It is extremely important that each family goes through the process of obtaining a U.S. birth certificate for your child.

We recommend that you store any original documents related to your child’s adoption finalization in a safe place such as a fire- & water-proof container or a safety deposit box.

America World will have copies of your adoption paperwork, so if you lost any of these documents and need a copy, please reach out to postadoption@awaa.org. Or if you need guidance on how to acquire the U.S. birth certificate, we would be happy to help you.

 “He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress; I shall not be greatly shaken.”

Psalm 62:2
