Juan David was officially sworn in today and finally received his certificate of citizenship. (He became a citizen when he entered the United States, but it still took the last 7 months to get his certificate, and children who are adopted over the age of 14 have to take the oath). As of mid January, they were still waiting on a file. He went back in to the immigration office with Mike today to get some more information for social security, and they ended up finalizing it all while he was there today. :) Kind of a nice surprise.
- I am a wife, daughter, mother, bilingual teacher, poet, author, women's Bible study teacher, world traveler, orphan advocate, and an adoptive mother. Our adoption journey has been filled with a lot of hurt and loss, along with even more hope, grace, and healing. Through it we have experienced more of God than we ever bargained for and have watched Him miraculously redeem our story when we surrendered all the broken pieces to Him.
