“Lawful Permanent Resident”

Just three little words, but they mean a lot when you have waited nearly twenty years to read them.

My dad is dead now. So is my grandma. They never got to hear these happy news. So it is bittersweet. But in spite of that, it is an unbelievably joy, an indescribable happiness. Now I can begin to work towards being a citizen –voting, being part of a jury, truly being part of this country I’ve called my home for twenty years. I am so grateful, regardless of how hard the journey was.

I wish I could hold a big party at our house to celebrate this, but the pandemic doesn’t make that possible… so I’ll just have a little party in my heart. ๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿฅ‚๐ŸŽ‰

Got something to say? ๐Ÿ’ฌ
