  1. Sounds reasonable to me. Although in my case I’d prefer the citizenship of my country of origin. I’m not familiar with laws pertaining to citizenship/nationality but I’m fine with this as long as it does not become a situation where through automatic citizenship it’s considered an elective second citizenship to the country of origin and therefore the first country chooses not to recognize the adoptee, if the country of origin does not recognize dual-citizenship. Because I think the adoptee should have the choice/ability to maintain all citizenships. In a perfect world. At least until they’re of age to choose.
