Holt Family Featured – Meski Becomes A Citizen!

In 2009, Tom Chandler and Nancy Swift adopted their daughter Meskerem — “Meski” — from Ethiopia.  Last week, Meski officially became a U.S. citizen!

“Tom held Meski’s right hand in the air, and they talked about what each of the children would become in our society,” Nancy told a reporter of the “moving” ceremony held in their state capitol, Sacramento.

“There are kids all over the world who deserve and need love,” Nancy is quoted of saying about their decision to adopt internationally. “We literally traveled more than halfway around the world to get her, and we’re glad she found us. She’s brought us so much joy… I can’t imagine a life without Meski.”
