Braggin' on Sissy.....
Can I brag on Sissy? I guess as a proud mama I can do that, right? I will "toot her own horn!". Yesterday, she starred in her clarinet solo at the Regional Music Festival. She played Nocturne by Bassi and now will be going to compete at State Music Festival in May. We are so proud of you, Sissy! Here's a photo of her from her Glamour Shots session in December.....
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!
