Flashback Friday~4th of July 2007

Friday, July 2, 2010

Kate had been home exactly 3 months to the day. And although she was not a US citizen, we celebrated this American holiday for the first time with her. I have very fond memories of this day. It has been 3 years now and Kate may or may not be an American citizen this 4th of July ...stay tuned:)

  5. What cute and patriotic kids! I know you can't wait for Kate's citizenship. How long does that take for an internationally adopted child?

  8. I thought kids became US Citizens when their toes touch US soil? Is this not true?

  9. Ok, now you got me wondering. How is Kate not an American citizen? Wasn't she an American citizen when you were in China or when you first came home? Please give more details.


    Oh- cute pictures!!! Then again, I don't think Kate ever takes a bad photo.

  14. I thought they became us citizens when the plane landed. That's what we were told with our 2. Is it different if only one parent travels to China?
