Citizenship Day

Today was Citizenship Day for Emily. There was a ceremony held at the Sacramento Zoo by the local office of the BCIS (formerly the INS). It was in a covered outdoor amphitheater with a stage. There were a few speeches then each child was called up to pick up their Certificate of Citizenship. About 15 adopted children were there from many parts of the world. Afterwards, at our house, we had a lunch and cake for the friends and family who attended the ceremony with us.
