The case went to the Supreme Court, which ruled that same_sex couples must receive the same legal treatment as different_sex ones. When an Arkansas circuit_court judge later ruled that the ADH must comply, this triggered a brief crisis Friday. Until the state ended its practice, now considered discriminatory, no newborns were allowed to be issued birth certificates. The governor ordered the ADH to meet the Supreme Court standard.

Your parent(s) should have registered your birth with the US Embassy in the country where you were born. Your parent(s) would have received a document called "Consular Report of Birth Abroad" which is a report that works similarly to an official birth certificate in many cases. It is possible to get a copy of this directly from the U.S. Department of State, or you may be able to order it online through a trusted ordering service that handles online ordering for vital record agencies in the U.S. Additionally, some countries will list your birth in their records.
