Should we Re-Adopt?

Our two kids were adopted from Russia in 2004. Their birth certificates are currently in Russian attached to an English translation copy. So far, we haven’t been inconvenienced enough to go through the re-adoption process.
To re-adopt your kids in the states costs around $800 a piece (at least in IL) but it gives you a valid American birth certificate.
Some people claim it makes things much easier to have the English copy but I just haven’t seen a big need for it yet.
Tania even applied for her driver’s permit and they loved the Russian birth certificate. The guy registering her gave her lots of extra attention and she loved it. I was glad I had her citizenship paper (in English and with a photo of her on it)…as that helped ‘seal the deal’.

Your opinion on Re-Adoption???
