Amend SB 151 by striking all below the enacting clause and 
substituting the following:
	SECTION 1.  Subchapter A, Chapter 162, Family Code, is 
amended by adding Section 162.023 to read as follows:
Except as otherwise provided by law, an adoption order rendered to a  
resident of this state that is made by a foreign country shall be 
accorded full faith and credit by the courts of this state and 
enforced as if the order were rendered by a court in this state 
unless the adoption law or process of the foreign country violates 
the fundamental principles of human rights or the laws or public 
policy of this state.
	(b)  A person who adopts a child in a foreign country may 
register the order in this state.  A petition for registration of a 
foreign adoption order may be combined with a petition for a name 
change.  If the court finds that the foreign adoption order meets 
the requirements of Subsection (a), the court shall order the state 
registrar to:
		(1)  register the order under Chapter 192, Health and 
Safety Code; and
		(2)  file a certificate of birth for the child under 
Section 192.006, Health and Safety Code.
	SECTION 2.  This Act takes effect September 1, 2003.
