Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
This is something you have to get from your state's Child Protection Agency, because it is not something typically issued unless it is an adoption done through CPS and they have to conduct an interview and a criminal background check to determine you are qualified and fit to adopt. SO you need to go through the state where you last resided and you need to have their CPS do the investigation to issue the certificate.
