It is with great joy and pride that we announce the adoption of our darling daughter, Nikolina Beatrix Josephine Tell, on September 23rd in Belgrade, Serbia. We praise God for entrusting us with this precious child and are so thankful that after more than a year of working toward this goal, we can finally say she is officially and forevermore our daughter!
Nikolina – Victory of the People (her birth name and a very popular Serbian name)
Beatrix – She who makes happy (Joey’s proud father pick)
Josephine – Jehovah increases (after my brother, Joseph)
She was born on December, 14th, 2012, and also goes by Nina.
We would also like to take this moment to thank all of you who have prayed, encouraged and given of your time and finances to make our family united today. We are humbled to have so many people take part in our story. You all have been part of changing her life and our life and we are so so thankful.
