Yesterday (Wednesday 30th March) at 9am I became a German citizen. A small sentence to describe a monumental moment. After two years of wading through the courts, thinking it is done, getting to the brow of the hill and discovering another hill beyond and parents greying before my eyes, it is done.
My passport was created whilst I played with toys and chucked them around the office and the adults talked some nonsense for half an hour.
My German birth certificate will follow later. For now it is enough that I can get on a plane (with my parents) and go anywhere I choose! Hurray!!
