My Bella Story

Let us help you tell YOUR CHILD’S story. Using pictures you send us, and details of the beautiful story you want to tell, we’ll create a storybook that you can share with your child. Their own BELLA story.
What is My Bella Story?
We think BELLA says it best. Our adopted daughter was our inspiration. Her name is Isabella Grace. “Bella” means beautiful and her middle name is for “Grace of God”. We wanted her to know that she was chosen, that she was a gift. So we created a book that we felt would well illustrate her story as “The beautiful grace of God’s love and gift to our lives!”

As we shared it with her, and saw how much joy it brought her, we decided to create a storybook for our son, too. As friends and family saw these books, and the joy and sense of identity that it gave to our children, we started receiving requests to help others do the same for their children. That’s how My Bella Story was born.

Let us help you create a book that will be a wonderful love story to a child; YOUR CHILD. It lets them know who they are, where they came from, and shares your story about how you chose them to come into your life forever. We help you put words and pictures together in a way that helps make it real for your child. We add in scripture verses, if you like, that will be tailored to the topic on the page to help give life to the words.

Our Bella Books are crafted with care and begin at $149, which includes printing and shipping costs. Additional books, for grandparents of course, cost up to $89, but can cost less when purchasing four books. We’ll include one book for free when you purchase four.

Patriots’ 2018 draft picks: Lamar Jackson firmly in play with two first-rounders

If you think the Patriots have had a wild offseason since NFL free agency began, just wait until they’re on the clock in the 2018 NFL Draft.

Pick Nos. 43, 63 and No. 95 give the Patriots a ton of flexibility. For their top second-rounder, of the players mentioned above, Rudolph and Hubbard are most likely to be available. Stanford safety Justin Reid, South Dakota State tight end Dallas Goedert and Oklahoma State wide receiver James Washington also would be solid picks.

The Patriots of late have not gotten much of an impact from the draft, as they haven’t had the necessary picks to manipulate the board exactly how Belichick would like. They wield that great power now, and everyone knows it comes with great responsibility. Don’t expect anything less than amazing when we look back on this transition class for New England five years or so later.

The report stated that the Bills and Saints have also shown interest, but New Orleans just signed ex-Bear Cameron Meredith and Buffalo doesn’t seem to interest Bryant.

Bryant has just 150 receptions over the last three seasons. He has not had over 900 yards during that time, either, while scoring just 17 touchdowns. He averaged over 90 receptions for over 1,300 yards and 14 touchdowns the previous three seasons.

The Ravens haven’t had much luck with veteran receivers in recent seasons, but Bryant may just need a change of scenery to rediscover his best form.

With the 2018 NFL Draft less than two weeks away, the first-round picture remains as murky as ever. The first overall pick is still included in trade discussions, and even if the Browns stay put, the discussion moves to the draft’s two best quarterbacks.

Add the flurry of trade talks, and this class is set to be one of the most intriguing in recent history.seahawks_003

David Johnson: Cardinals Can Be Best Offense in NFL with Sam Bradford

Arizona Cardinals running back David Johnson has high expectations with Sam Bradford leading the offense in 2018.   

Appearing on SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio on Wednesday, Johnson said the Cardinals will have the best offense in the NFL if the quarterback stays healthy:

“We’re going to be great if Sam Bradford is healthy. … For me watching him personally I’ve seen him do some great things. I think the biggest thing is just being healthy. Not just with the addition of him but also the linemen we got, the receivers and everyone else that we have added to the team on the offensive side, I think we definitely will be the top offense in the league this year.”

McCourty was near-shutdown in coverage last season as a surprise late signing for the Browns. They are retooling their secondary for a new regime, so the Patriots benefit and get a solid No. 2 replacement for Butler opposite Stephon Gilmore. The bonus is having Jason play with his brother Devin.

The price might seem high for a diminutive dasher who isn’t built to handle 20-25 touches per game, but there’s a lot of the Falcons’ Tevin Coleman in Kyle Shahahan’s latest open-field backfield cog. McKinnon improved his value with some big games filling in for Cook in Minnesota last season. He should be paired with another early-down, Devonta Freeman-type back in San Francisco. Look for that option to come in a deep running back draft.

“That’s probably something I think about a lot, and have for a long time,” Patricia said at last month’s league meetings. “I think it’s just kind of going to be who I am and what I think the team should be. I think it’s important for them to understand who I am as a person, and how I feel about this game, and how passionate I am about this game — how much I believe in the relationship part of this game. And this is family. So that hopefully all that will be conveyed through my conversation with them the first time I get a chance to talk to them.

“But also, I want them to understand what I’m looking for from a team when we turn on the film, making sure that we’re playing smart football, tough football, fundamentally sound football,” Patricia said. “Those are all very important things to me that you build on and you start from.”

One player who will not be in the building today is defensive end Ziggy Ansah. He’s remaining in his home country Ghana for a family obligation, according to a team source. He and his representation have been in regular communication with the organization’s leadership, including Patricia, making sure the team is familiar with his plans. Those talks, and the relationship between player and team, were characterized as positive by the source. The expectation is Ansah will be back with the Lions in the near future.la_kings_003
