We have a new US citizen in our family. We are so proud of him.  Our

daughter is married to a young man originally from Poland. He arrived on our

shores at the age of ten speaking Polish, German, a little Russian, and

not any English.  He had to catch up fast.  Luckily for him, he was in a class

of all foreign students, so he was in the same predicament as everyone else. 

Flash forward to age 15, high school, lots of teen angst and his parents

must return to Poland. They made a huge sacrifice to leave him here in

the US with friends, so he can graduate and stay safely in the United States. 

To make a long story short, he attends college here, gets a job here, and

eventually meets our daughter here in the US.  More than two thirds of his life,

he has been living in the United States.

Today is his first day as a US Citizen.

Getting sworn in as US citizen

  Congratulations Sebastian!
