Your mother was not eligible to naturalize. A re-entry permit is used to merely establish that your mother did not intend to abandon her status. It allowed your mother to apply for admission to the United States after remaining abroad for up to two years without having to obtain a returning resident visa. A re-entry permit cannot be used to establish continuous residence in the United States. An extended absence of more than longer than six months from the United States will still break the continuity of residence in the United States for naturalization purposes regardless of whether a person has a re-entry permit. Effectively, a re-entry permit helps insulate a person from losing their lawful permanent residence due to abandonment.
