Originally posted by Benevolent HereticWhat you have is a "souvenir" birth certificate. Read about it in the Original Post. If I were you, I would send away for a "real" birth certificate.

I'm talking about the official records that a doctor fills out the minute the child is born. What I'm talking about is called (at least on my paperwork) a "Physician's Newborn Record"
I also have her "real" birth certificate that was mailed to me by the State of Pennsylvania, and this is entitled: "Certification of Birth."
I mean, what's the worst it's going to say, that you only received a "6" out of "10" on the APGAR scores... or that you were a little jaundiced?
1. My conclusion is that the Certificate of Live Birth that Obama posted on the Internet is a "short form" (abstract) of his vault copy and the information therein is exactly the same as that which is on his vault copy on record in the state of Hawaii’s Health Department.
2. Further, since the title of my long form AND my friend's short form are exactly the same (Certificate of Live Birth), I conclude that there is no real difference between a "Birth Certificate" and a "Certificate of Live Birth" except for the volume of information, as is so many times asserted by people who are asking for the "original". They have the original. It's just a condensed version of the vault original.
I’d love to hear your comments, thoughts and questions. And I’d also love to hear what you find out when you inspect YOUR birth certificates. Thanks for reading!
Now, again, I don't want to argue about Obama's birth. As I've said before, I hope for the sake of the country that the Supreme Court just lets the issue drop, and quite honestly, he'll either succeed or fail because of what he does, or doesn't do, not because of where he is born.
He was born in the state of Hawaii. Rest easy. Obama is indeed a NATURAL BORN citizen and eligible for the office of president. There is no ISSUE as I've heard it put. A qualificaoitn I cannot say all the candidates possessed. But November 4 rendered that moot.

It gives our child's correct date of birth, the city and Latin American country of birth, BUT it lists my wife and I as the parents, even though, obviously, we were not the biological parents. At the bottom of the "Certificate of Birth Data", in bold letters, is the phrase "This Certificate is NOT proof of US citizenship."
I don't think they could legally say the child was born in the US. For citizenship reasons. BUT the child is probably a naturalized citizen through the adoption. I'm not asking you to verify that, but it is my suspicion that somewhere in the adoption papers, your child became a "naturalized" US citizen. That's why the certificate cannot be used for citizenship purposes.
