A few years ago my mom set a goal for herself. She wanted to become a citizen of these United States. We all thought it was a great idea. She set out to study and studied hard. English is her 2nd language and knew that she would have to take the test in English. Eventhough she was scared to take the test she never gave up.
She got her letter in the mail stating when she would have her test apt. She was doubtful some days that she would not be able to pass but she kept studying and was determined to pass. She would make my kids and myself help her with the questions and the answers. She would make my kids ask her questions and she would give them the answers. I was very impressed with my mom; I do believe that dreams come true and this was one BIG dream that she had wanted for such a long time.
She passed the test and got her letter in the mail to be sworn in as a US Citizen. Here are some pictures of the event. My dad and I were the only ones that were able to go but I was so proud of my mom, YES I cried and was so happy that she had accomplished what she had set out to do.
To my mom: I am very proud of you for all that you have set out to do. I know that when you say you want to do something you go for it. You give me strength everyday to do what I want. I know that I can count on you for anything and I am proud to be your daughter.
