Today is the day Bella left the only place she has ever known and has joined the Burckhard family (at least the half of our family on this side of the ocean).
Here is our Ukrainian princess with our favorite caregiver Helena:
As we were saying goodbye to the Orphanage Director, she climbed up in his chair. He thought it was so funny and put his stethoscope around her neck to boot!
Here we are outside the Berizka Orphanage Gate. In the adoption world it is fondly called "Gotcha Day!"
And after a full day, here are two of my girls back at the apartment.
I will tell you more later, but suffice it to say that my heart is full of love and thankfulness to God for blessing us with another daughter to love.
Good night all.....it's only 7:50 here in Ukraine. And, as I type this, a little 4 year old girl is sleeping soundly next to me.
To God be the Glory! In Him, Paula
