Mom2GirlsTX Posted June 3, 2009 Share Posted June 3, 2009 My youngest is adopted so today at Dr.'s office I was filling out paperwork (actually updating it) and the receptionist told me that they needed to see my paperwork. I asked her what paperwork was she wanting, and she said "You know, your adoption paperwork". I must have had the most confused look on my face. She said that since I was an adoptive parent I needed to prove that I was a legal guardian. :glare: This particular dr.'s office is part of the Cook Children's Physician Network and she has been seeing many specialist since she was adopted at 7 1/2 months old. She is 9 1/2 years old and I have never been asked this. I have never been asked to prove I was my biological child's mother, why should I prove I am my adopted child's mother? Both girls are on my insurance card, and I have used this specialists office for 3 years. I really do not feel like I should bring in her adoption paperwork (I'm tempted to bring in the untranslated foreign paperwork and let them muddle through it) She said well you could just bring her legal birthcertificate ...or a passport. I am really upset as I don't see why I have to prove this, when no one else is having to prove there biological child is theirs, they aren't bringing DNA samples or birth certificates. Just wondering how I should handle this? Advice anyone :) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
