Mackenzie Day 11

Today was a big day for our little princess! Today Mackenzie was sworn in as a US citizen. She is an honorary citizen until we land in Chicago. As soon as she sets foot in America, the process is complete, and official! There were about 45 families with us there all getting sworn in, it was so exciting! Now we just need her visa, which we receive tomorrow, and we can take our girl home! Hurray!!!
Three tour buses drove all the families to the American consulate...

Joanna-
Have so enjoyed following your final leg in this long journey of adoption to your sweet Mackenzie. She is beautiful and the pictures are incredible, you've both done such a fantastic "job" of recording your time in China for later years and to share. Blessings to your family of 3! Safe Travels-

Hi Joanna! Now that I am in Hong Kong I can read your blog and I love it. Fabulous photos of Mackenzie. I can't wait to read about today. Once you post about our drama, do you mind if I put a link from my website...the babyjellybeans for Phoebe's experience?
Missing you already!

One step closer to home!!! :-) I find it very interesting to follow your journey since it is SO different than the Taiwan journey we've taken.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
