Welcome to America, Catherine (Updated)

Catherine at a St. Louis tea party rally in 2009.

Several years ago while on a business trip to Asia my twin brother Joe met a lovely woman from China. Catherine lived in Shenzhen, the modern mainland city outside of Hong Kong. Catherine was raised in a rural community not far from Wuhan. Her family was not rich. They did not have indoor plumbing. They lived in a small home, raised chickens and farmed a small plot of land. When Catherine was old enough and brave enough she left her rural community and moved to Shenzhen. She found a job and lived in a tiny apartment.

Joe and Catherine were married in 2008 and then Catherine moved to America. She went to night school for English lessons and worked at a Sam’s Club, not because she needed to but because she wanted to. She wanted to contribute.

This morning my sister-in-law Catherine will be sworn in as a US citizen in downtown St. Louis.

She’s very excited.

Dana gave Catherine a wonderful shout-out today on her radio show.
Thank you, Dana!

Congratulations, Catherine.
And welcome to America.

UPDATE: It’s official.
Catherine and 51 others took the oath this morning in downtown St. Louis.

Here’s Catherine with friends Charlie and Rachel before the ceremony.

    Creepy. She is awfully young.”

    Being young is creepy? My kids are going to be very upset to hear this.

    You are very beautiful, hardworking and loving, Catherine. I am sure you will make an excellent citizen. We need more people like you. God bless you and your husband. I hope you will have many children and will teach them the virtues of capitalism and freedom. So great to see you at a Tea Party rally. Your husband is a lucky man!

    Cool story. I have made many trips to Hong Kong. Around 50. Been to Sbenzhen, Guanzhou, and other towns in the area as a well.

    And used to see anywhere from 10-20 babies riding home to the U.S. with their new parents.

    Very cool. Oh, and all girls. Not once did I see a boy.
