Re-Adoption: A term that is used to describe the practice of adopting a foreign child in the United States after it has already been adopted by its adoptive parents in the foreign country of its origin. The most common reason for a re-adoption is to allow the child to obtain a United States birth certificate, written in English, showing the adoptive parents as though they were the biological parents of the child. This new birth certificate that is obtained in the re-adoption would be essentially identical to the birth certificates that are issued to all other children in that same geographic location. This procedure enables the adopted foreign child to have a local birth certificate in English that does not identify or set the child apart from other children as being a child that is as somehow "different" from other children.
