17 years in the making.......

Today was a GREAT day in my family's life! 17 years ago my parents left everything they knew to bring my siblings and I to the amazing USA. It was a decision they made to give their children a better life. When we first arrived here, I never thought this day would come. It was just a dream we all had. But 17 years later, here we are. My dad was the first one in the family to get sworn in as a Citizen of the United States. What a beautiful day it was! I am so proud of him. And so extremely grateful that my parents made so many sacrifices to make sure we had a better life than they did. And now, I get to have my children born in the USA, they are natural citizens. I am so grateful for that. And I will raise them to know that all they have is because of all the hard work their grandparents went through to bring me here. I am just in awe and so amazed that my parents got to realize the American Dream! My dad was on cloud 9 today! It was so cute watching him! My mom will be next, I can't wait!
