Default Traveling with Stepchild

My hubby and I and the kids are set for our first cruise. No problem with our 3 year old, we clearly own her. But what about hubby's 9 year old? We have been told we need to have a notarized statement from his mother in order to take him out of the country. We have talked to his mom and she has no problem signing the statement, now we just need to know what it should say.

The folks at child services were not very helpful other than to say yes, you need to have something from her saying she knows. The TA said we need to have a very explicit statement that includes all trip info, names and social security numbers of all involved.

Is there a happy medium somewhere? It seems silly to put social security numbers on the statement when they aren't on the birth certificates.
