Thought I would post some photos of Bella’s current home–the Berizka Orphanage in Kiev. Our translator said it is one of the nicest Ukraine orphanages she has been in. We are thankful that Bella has been blessed to spend her first years in such a nice orphanage–but, it is still not a home AND she does not have a family who loves her.
What a parallel to God and our future home in heaven! Bella doesn’t know that life is going to be better than what she’s always known, and we of little faith do not always trust that heaven will be a better place–with a loving, PERFECT Father!
This adoption has opened our eyes in so many ways! What an honor and a privilege to have this experience to glimpse into the ways our Father has adopted us and how His Son prepares a place for us! It is so hard for me to wrap my mind around it, yet through this adoption process, I gain a small understanding…
Love in Him, Paula
The Director (& us) He’s holding a photo of Jake–He loved Jake because he has a cat that is his “twin” right there in Kiev! Who knew Jake would have a hand (or paw) in this adoption! See Kevin, Jake is a good cat!
