DAY 4 WITH BELLA

YES BELLA DOES SUCK HER THUMB

SHE LOVES TO STAND ON HER HEAD

MOM MAKING BELLA LAUGH

SHE LOOKS UP LIKE THIS SO SHE CAN GET A KISS ON THE FOREHEAD




WALKING AROUND THE PLAYGROUND


Another good visit with our princess today, the weather wasn't to bad so we were able to go outside for a bit, we walked around the playground for awhile until the wind picked up. There is lots of play toys for the children and play houses and swings,it is a very nice play area with lots of trees,grass and flowers to enjoy.We picked up the needed paperwork for Bella's visa at the U.S. Embassy yesterday, being U.S. citizens we were sent to the front of the line so their was no waiting here. We are praying the ministry officials find the minister today or tomorrow so he can sign the paperwork to have our adoption of Bella in her hometown and then she will be ours.We were very courageous today and walked around town near our apartment, we found the neatest outdoor market and Jody practically bought them out, luckily it was closing time and they were starting to pack everything up.We don't have a whole lot of free time on our hands after we visit Bella, but that is fine because she is the reason we are here and we love to spend as much time as possible with her. Pray for good news from the ministry tomorrow.

Love the pictures! The Minister was gone when we adopted as well. Don't worry he will be found! Prayers are with you!

I eagerly watch each day to see how things are going. It is so good to see little Bella smile! She seems to be having a great time getting to know her Daddy and Mommy!

I'll be praying that you get the minister's signature very soon! Thanks for sharing so much with us. Did you find shoes for Bella?

We are so enjoying reading about your days with Bella. Thank you for sharing. Daniella (our daughter from Serbia) got excited when she saw your picture of the rug in the playroom. She just loves Jasmina. Who doesn't? Such a wonderful woman. I agree with Tammy; don't worry the minister will be found as planned.
blessings,
Vickie

Hi...Just5 was curious about her name Bella. I thought it was Magdalena (sorry if I misspelled). Has Serbia started allowing the adoptive parent to re-name their child or do you still have to use their Serbian name???? Thanks...Trisha (mom2r9)
