The Most Meaningful 4th of July Ever!

The Fourth of July has always been one of my favorite holidays.  I got engaged on this day and have had countless parties, but this year was special.  Danny Teodorescu a Romanian immigrant and total stranger that was shot and robbed in Richmond in 2007.  We took him in for four years until he got on his feet and he became family.  Today he took the oath to attain citizenship in the USA.  Below is the article in today’ paper and some photos from the Naturalization ceremony.
