Flat Stanley Visits North Dakota....
Texas cousin Victoria sent her Flat Stanley to North Dakota for a visit with Grace and Bella. Daddy and the girls took him on a sightseeing adventure to the Scandanavian Heritage Park here in our town.
Here are some snapshots of his visit:
He is already on his way home back to Texas. Thanks, Victoria, for sending him to us!
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!
