Good afternoon Kathleen,

I'm Doug, and my goal is to provide you with excellent service today. In order to give you a clear and concise answer, I will need some additional information about the circumstances, please.

1. What does your birth certificate read?

2. How did they get the idea that R was your middle initial in the first place?

Doug
