Record Time

So last week when I went to order my passport I did not know I had to give up my only original certified birth certificate. I very reluctantly said goodbye to my birth certificate & promptly ordered another one. I sent the request via priority mail last Friday & got the new one in the mail today. I can't believe they were so speedy! I thought for sure it would be at least a couple of weeks before my new one arrived. I don't know why, but I feel so much better having this document in my hot little hands. Thank you Lord (and the State of West Virginia)!

Yay! Wow, it is such a beautiful background compared to mine..mine is just plain and boring. =)

I have a plain one too and was also reluctant to send off my original but it took forever for me to get another copy.

FYI...this isn't my actual birth certificate. This is one of their commemorative ones you can pay extra money for - which I did not. Mine is plain too, which didn't make for a very pretty picture. They also have a quilt design.

Okay- I wondered how you got such a pretty birth certificate-thanks for explaining. Hey West Virginia is right next door to me!

It's true - I'm a born & bred hillbilly!

I have never seen such a pretty certificate ... ok, now I read your explanation! Our family originally hails from West Virginia as well (later moved to Delaware.) We still love to return to those beautiful mountains for family vacations!

Glad it arrived so quickly. Celebrate every little victory!
