To Pinback regarding his adopted child

Post by Tdarcos » Tue Jul 10, 2018 7:02 pm

Having read an item about adoptions in the UK I had a question.

What citizenship does your adopted child have? I know there are certain provisions where China does not recognize taking citizenship from other countries. Does it keep its Chinese citizenship because it's not old enough to apply on its own with the US, or something else, and does getting US citizenship automatically revoke its Chinese citizenship or does that require explicit application?

Perhaps fighting 2,000+ roaches sapped his will to fight. Or live.

We don't fight them, we feed them to the bearded dragon (or in Mina's case, plays with them.)

Okay, so your child is a U.S. national. Does it still keep its Chinese citizenship, does it lose it, or did you specifically petition for it to be renounced?

(Pssst, Paul. You know that Pinback adopted a young girl. It is polite to refer to a person's child using gender-appropriate pronouns ("him/her" or "he/she", in simpler times) in general conversation. Referring to someone's child as "it" repeatedly is a bit offensive. Granted, it's not the most offensive thing you've ever said, but it's relatively tacky. Please update your personal style guide.)

Also, Pinback, to what extent will you be keeping your daughter away from the Internet?
