Dad's An American Citizen!
On Tuesday, January 20th, my dad became a citizen of the United States. Even though he's lived in the US for much of his married life, he only had a green card. Yesterday, after lots of waiting, paperwork and money, he became an official citizen of the United States.
Here he is taking the oath of allegiance to the United States. He still retains his Canadian citizenship, so now he's both American and Canadian (like me!!).
Here he is receiving his certificate from the district representative from the Office of Homeland Security. I find it interesting that Dad became a US citizen on the same day that Barack Obama was inaugurated as president! ;-)
