"To bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair." Isaiah 61:3

Well, I suppose I will eventually have to show a picture of myself. So, here is our Christmas card from last year. It will be so fun next year to have Bella in our family photo too. We are patiently awaiting her arrival. Ok, maybe not so patiently!
And I should also post a picture of our cat Jake. He is actually our first adoption--we got him when he was two years old. He's a great cat!
From our family to yours.............Have Blessed Sunday!
Hello! My name is Paula Burckhard. I am married to Kevin and have five children: Elizabeth (18), Samuel (14), Grace (12 w/Down syndrome), Bella (7 w/Down syndrome adopted from Ukraine 2009); and Nole' (4 w/Down syndrome adopted from Serbia 2011) We are a family that loves God and desires to bring him Glory in all we do.
Nole' (listed as Nathan) Came Home on March 2, 2011 from Serbia!
Bella Bogdana Burckhard
This "beautiful gift from God" has been given to us through the miracle of adoption. She became part of our family in August 2009. We are excited to see how God will use this Ukrainian princess for his glory!
