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.

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!
