"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

Liking the Vikings!
One of the best things about having children is influencing them on who their favorite sports teams are! So just like her big sister Grace, Bella is an official fan of the purple and gold. (Primarily because like Brett Favre, they are both feel like they are in a "foreign" country!) Bella does not quite understand all of the rules of American "futbol", but she does like to play catch with the Viking Nerf and she thinks she looks cute in her Vikings cheerleader outfit.
Grace not only likes playing catch but also likes to tackle which is why she is wearing the Helga helmet. It'll be easy to remember the year that the Vikings win their first Super Bowl because it will coincide with that Bella became part of our family.
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!
