Bobbi Beavers from OBC for ME tells us that the state’s Vital Stats office has been overwhelmed with requests for original birth certificates. As of January 9, 274 requests have been handled and a lot more are waiting.
Dan Companion, who received his obc on January 2 and met his first family the following day has sent me a couple links I didn’t have before and am posting here:
Restrictions lifted on original birth certificates featuring TV interviews with Dan who came up from Florida and other out-of-state-Day1ers.
Here is Dan’s’ slideshow of Opening Day events, pictures of the Statehouse in Augusta, and his reunion.
Congratulations Dan and all Maine adoptees!
