MSNBC forget to edit this.
Someone should post a pic of an empty baby chair.
“Lononehenu’uahihahauakeakua Keanupumekamakaninui Ka’ili’uli Cosme Tabura was born Dec. 13 at Kapiolani Medical Center...”
The kid will earn a PhD before he can spell his own name.
This would have nothing to do with Obozo, as the paper
just went into business in 2010...Merger of two papers.
I do not know if it is a “newspaper of record”.
It has been my understanding that Obozos birth announcement
was from advertising papers. Maybe someone else on here knows
if they were papers of record.
The predecessors were Honolulu Advertiser and Honolulu Bulletin. These papers were considered the papers of record for Hawaii.
“These papers were considered the papers of record for Hawaii.”
What paper carried Obama’s notice of birth, and was it from official records? IIRC, it was not from any official record, or unspecified.
Both papers carried the birth announcement.
Ping...StarAdvertiser on birth announcements
“Both papers carried the birth announcement.”
OK, but do we know if their information is from official sources? Not likely, if hospitals are not allowed to divulge
I have never given any thought to how papers get birth information.
Corsi has covered this issue extremely well. People could and frequently did submit (foreign) birth announcements (and then take the birth announcements as verification to get a birth certificate).
Berners-Lee was six years old in 1961.

Berners-Lee??? connection to thread?
“Corsi has covered this issue extremely well.”
OK. Well, I have not read all of Corsi’s investigation, but I did hear that the announcements are NOT from official sources.
If they were, it would have left us birthers null and void.
The current thread cites a web application having to do with birth announcements offered by a Hawaii paper. Berners-Lee invented said web in 1990.
The only Hawaiian birth announcement of any note had to do with a former (and reportedly soon to be returning) Hawaii resident. It predated the web by many years, and most certainly, therefore, has no connection to anything .com.
Thus, the obvious connection to the thread and the obvious conclusion that the thread is garbage.
My adopted (foreign born) daughter's announcement was placed in the paper (in 2002) by me making a phone call. I didn't want my adopted daughter to feel any different then my biological one, so if you go back and look it says “a baby girl, born to (us) of (our place of residence) on (DOB)". If you didn't know she was born in China, you wouldn't find it in the birth announcement section. No proof was asked for. I could have added at such and such hospital. This in 2002, no verification necessary.
What a thoughtful thing you did. Hopefully, your guys love is more important than an announcement.
...and it is interesting that something can look official and really have no factual basis behind it.
That BC was a spoof.
As far as I know, there is only one long form BC that hasn't been proven false, the one by Smith. Is that one real?
Yes, always, love is the most important thing. But with so few pictures from my daughter’s first year I thought it would be nice if both girls could have their birth announcements in their baby books, page 1, and I’ve always told both of them we are so happy to have them, even though they came into the family in different ways, so we had to put it in the paper!
When my daughter was very young, she’d laugh when I told her I prayed for the best two little girls in the world, one happened to grow in my tummy, the other happened to be in China on the other side of the world. She knows I don’t like flying, so the fact that I flew all the way to China and back makes her smile. :)
And you’re right, it was so easy to put that birth announcement in the paper, I didn’t lie, just didn’t mention place of birth.
Adoption is such a beautiful gift. It can change a circumstance that looks so foreboding into one of God's miracles. What must be one of the toughest decisions a mother could make, may end up being the greatest act of love she could do.
I so wish we could get away from the idea of open adoptions. How can a child truly have the clarity they deserve?
When a friend of mine was on his last days, he asked his son to have me join he and his family. I was reluctant since I didn't want to intrude on something so personal, and something that is so familial. He was extremely agitated until his son told him, "Tell him I will be there as soon as I can."
We were best friends in spite of 35 to 40 year age difference. He was also one of those extremely rare individuals that one could call great. We worked on projects that sometimes raised my eyebrows on who was involved. For all his greatness, his larger than life personality, the thing that matter most to him was sharing his love with his family, sharing the love of his Great Lord.
In the end, the fact that a child comes from others matters little. What matters is the love shared along the way.
Now that is pure joy between a father and his son!
To be honest, one reason we chose to adopt from China was because of the adoption process here, and the idea that it would have to be an open adoption. We had neighbors that went the open adoption route and all seemed well for the first few years, until the biological mother was no longer a teenager and wanted much more contact with the then little five year old. She found out where the girl went to school and would show up at their house unannounced. She wanted to be able to take the girl places, and mentioned how she was really mommy in front of the confused little girl. The adoptive parents wanted to stay in contact, but it was confusing
for the little girl, the biological mother acted like she was going to steal “her” daughter back and the family became scared for their little girl. They eventually moved and I believe the judge gave them a restraining order
against the biological mother. The little girl knows she’s adopted, is about 10 now and very happy.
You made a good decision on the overseas. May He bless your family and your friends. :-))
Wait—wow time flies— the girl has got to be about 16 now! We kind of lost touch after they moved but everything was fine the last time I ran into her mother!
Thank you for the blessing. :)
