Unbelievably, my trip down to the USCIS office paid off.
Yesterday, I got two certified copies of Sam’s Naturalization Certificate!
In true American Government fashion, they are crappy photocopies, but the embossed Department of Homeland Security stamp should prove it sufficient enough to satisfy even the most picky of consulates.
It’s a big victory. I believe I have everything I need to start apostles, but I’m going to wait around in hope to get that application for a marriage license for Sam and Rose.
Citizenship is within my grasp!
