Last Tuesday, on April 7th, my daughter-in-law Susan became a U.S. citizen. It was a very impressive ceremony. Susan was one of 94 applicants from 36 countries. There was a large audience to witness this event at the Dept. of Homeland Security in Tukwila. A joyful proud day for all.
Here is a picture of Susan taken on Easter Sunday, April 1st. She is wearing a green Aran sweater, a very Irish symbol. All the others in the photo – her husband, 4 children, and me – are American citizens by birth. We welcomed Susan to our midst. It’s only taken her 18 years to decide she would like to join this privileged group. Welcome Susan!
