November is National Adoption Month, and adoption was the focus at the state capital, Monday.

Children from all over the world can now officially call Connecticut their home.

It’s only fitting that the event is held under the hall of flags at the state capital, where  a group of adopted children got sworn in and became U.S. citizens.

Lt. Gov.  Nancy Wyman helped to celebrate the kids new citizenship.

After a singing of the national anthem and the pledge of alliegance, all the kids received their certificates.

“I can’t imagine what this world would be like, what the U.S. would be like, if we didn’t have people like you,” Wyman told the children and their parents.

The ceremony honored adopted children from Brazil, China, Korea, India, Haiti, Russia and Ghana.
