Mirette Franklin (l.) and Elsabet Franklin (c.) both biological sisters adopted in Ethiopia, hold flags as they listen to the singing of the national anthem during the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Adoption Day ceremony in New York. In recognition of November as National Adoption Month, USCIS naturalized 17 adopted children from six countries so that they may celebrate their first Thanksgiving with their families as American citizens.
