I am twenty-one years old today!

Darin Lee Jolliff was born September 25, 1964.

Darin Lee Jolliffe-Haas was born June 20, 1985.

June 20, 1985, we all stood before Judge Carroll and our adoption was finalized. My birth certicate was virtually the same but it listed David Lewis Haas as my father, Diana Kay Haas as my mother, my same birth date and location; however, the one thing that struck me as very peculiar was the date the birth certificate was submitted: September 26, 1964 – as though David Haas had always been my father.

So – I am of legal age and can officially drink!
