This afternoon I became a Dutch citizen for the second time, with my vow to Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands. I feel honoured to serve two Queens simultaneously.
I have become a born-again-Dutch-citizen through a nine month process. During this time I was cheered on by Michael, who was there to hold my hand. With of my labour coach Amy and her assistant Genevieve we made it through this seemingly endless task. Many scans were ordered, some repeated a second and third time, just to make sure. The end result is well worth it - a beautiful new Dutch Citizenship, meaning a European passport and endless joys barging through the canals of Europe.
