Bella Remembers Us!

Early this morning we received this wonderful message from Natasha, our translator:

Thanks for letting me know that you made it safely back home. Anatoliy has been to the orphanage. He saw Bogdana playing with the kids. When she saw him, she raised her arms and told " Mama... mama..." . She knew that we've been to the orphanage with you. She is very clever.

This little message brings us such comfort....Love in Him, Paula
