"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

A Visit to Santa.....
We visited Santa tonight. Grace snuggled up to him and laid her head on his shoulder beaming up to him while gently patting his shoulder. Bella took a bit of coercing for her first visit, but finally cautiously sat on his lap.
Grace wants a necklace and Bella wants a doll for Christmas...They were two VERY excited little elves!
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!
