Good News For Curious Servant

I shared a little while ago that against all projections, advice, and odds we applied for citizenship for my two sons.

We were told that it would take six months for them to process the paperwork for citizenship or passports which would be proof of citizenship (we have nothing in hand that shows they were granted citizenship).

In today's mail WE GOT THEIR PASSPORTS!!!!!


I am so thrilled I can hardly contain myself!

No chance of deportation. No need for green cards. No more background checks, lawyer fees, immigration interviews, NO MORE RED TAPE!!!!!

Honestly, I'm a little misty.

What a privilege it is to know my children can walk into any U.S. embassy anywhere in the world and be granted safe haven.

Dear Curious Servant,
congratulations to the parents and to Isaiah and Jeremiah.
This was so well deserved and it also heightens my opinion of the USA as a society.
May the Lord continue to bless you and hold his protecting hands over you.

Yipee, CS! So glad to hear that!

I'm still waiting on my Canadian citizenship after adoption...the judge told my parents I became a citizen at adoption, but 15 years later found out there is no law stating that!!!

God bless you,

What a blessed day! I only wish that all American citizens valued their citizenship as much as your sons do theirs. Congratulations!

Thank you Terry for your nice note and poem! I wasn't aware of that one.

And I as you see, I am back blogging a little. I still have a lot to do though which isn't blogging.

Wow! I haven't been here in a while, I drop by, and see one of my posts!

Thank you, all of you!

Life has been challenging of late and I haven't visited folks as much as I like or as much as they deserve.

Thank you for your kind words.

Thank you Terry for sharing this.

Terry, You haven't offended me at all!!! There was a time when you didn't comment for a long while, but I think you had things going on and was working quite a bit. I didn't mean to leave you out. I redid my blog and could only re-add the people who's blogs I remembered. I don't have Rachel's or yours anymore or my friend Sharons. It wasn't meant as that I didn't want you anymore!!! You have all our love from your USA KY friends!!! Ryan, Jessica, Ty and Macie
