"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

Happy Birthday, Bella!


Happy Birthday, Bella! Today is our little girl's 5th birthday. We are so excited to celebrate this day with her!

I remember last year on her birthday--I felt so sad that we weren't able to be with her on this special day.

What a difference a year can make!

Kevin said this morning, "It seems just like yesterday when we brought her home. Oh, wait, we did just bring her home..." Ha Ha, Papa, you are so funny!

So, this is our Ukrainian princess's 1st birthday, although it's her 5th, at home surrounded by a Mama, Papa, a brother, and two sisters who love her more than she will ever know...

Happy Birthday, Bella!
