... in a patriotic and quite moving ceremony.

I know there are a couple of people here following my citizenship journey, so wanted to give you an update :D



If you think of it, please send up a prayer for my hubby to be released from "name check" so he can also complete his journey.

Welcome to the USA officially as one of US.

And prayers that the paperwork gets loosened up so your hubby can join you.

Thank you everyone :)

Suburbanite - the first thing I did as US citizen was register to vote - they had a table right outside the door so we could do so ;)

Congratulations!

I've just had some co-workers and a member of my family go through this. In one case, involved a family whose sons/uncles had been tortured and killed by Sadaam.

Truly moving experience and makes me appreciate how lucky I am to have been born in this country.

My heartiest welcome and congratulations. This is the way immigration should be and I certainly hope your husband can fulfill his wishes promptly as well.

My sister-in-law is from another land and became a citizen in the 1970s. I was very disappointed that we were not informed of her process and were not invited to nor informed of her ceremony. What a great day it would have been to welcome into citizenship in America and not just into the family.

Again welcome to all of your family.

Anyone who immigrates and goes through the citizenry process has my respect. I guarantee you know more about this country than I do. You worked hard to earn that citizenship. My hat's off to you.

Best of luck to your husband. Hopefully that will be done with soon and he can get on with the process.

How exciting! I'm really happy for you.
I will send a prayer for your husband and I hope he's celebrating this honor with you soon.
