Photos from Trip 1 to Haskovo, Bulgaria to meet our daughter Penka. December 17-21, 2012. Until the adoption is finalized we will not be posting any pics of Penka except for a few below that are from a distance to protect her identity in accordance with Hague Convention adoption regulations.
Haskovo is famous for having the world's largest statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
