Thank you for your thoughts, and those links might be useful! I have seen a lawyer in the meantime, and he is competent and I feel more than comfortable with my choice. I do believe that everything will turn out OK. But, I hope that expat mamas in other countries will take into account the possibility that authorities will consider the child you give birth to may, in fact, not be your child, but an illegally adopted child. I have prenatal records of some sorts, pictures of my pregnant self, pictures taken immediately PP, and a placenta. I have nursed in front of govt officials. Those things would convince me that my child is my child. Actually, my guess is that the problems I am dealing with are not serious, however, I am definitely VERY SCARED over the possibility that they are. Thanks for your support. I would be more clear about the whole thing, but this is still the internet which anyone can read. Also, I have considered giving them links to MDC to show them I was preparing to give birth, but I don't want to compromise MDC in any way. What do you think?
