Happy 150th Birthday Canada, and my baby girl!
Like many Canadians, I'm an immigrant here. From the first moment I stepped off that plane it was crystal clear that I was stepping on a truly wonderful land... How do you express your gratitude to an adoptive mother who took you in, accepted you exactly for who you are, and gave you all the comfort you needed and more? How do you express your gratitude for the encouragement in letting the uniqueness of your roots to shine? Thank You Canada for being such an extraordinary haven, for the amazing opportunities, for making it possible to go to school all over again and help me become the person that I am today. I will always be a Romanian in my heart, will always miss where I was born and raised. But I think that's what being a true Canadian really is: someone who doesn't forget where they come from. I am here as part of you, striving to be the best citizen that I can be, always praising you through my passion of singing and writing. Happy 150th Birthday Canada!
This day is more so meaningful to me on a personal level, as 14 years ago my baby girl was born on Canada Day. Happy Birthday my angel :)
