We are in China!

We have made it to China, and now have our daughter! She is Delilah Changyu Parsons. She is a very sweet-natured child who can be very silly. She took our hands at the Civil Affairs Office, walked out with us and never looked back. She is very tiny with a very big belly. Apparently she got a new haircut for this special event, because it is even shorter than her referral pictures. We are all getting along well. Kirk and I are having a hard time adjusting to the time change, and usually awaken between 2-4:00am for the day. This morning we went to the Bell Tower and then Drum Tower. This afternoon we go to see the Wild Goose Pagoda. Tomorrow we see the Terra-cotta Warriors. When we where in Beijing we went to Tianimin Square, Forbidden City and the Great Wall of China.


  1. Congratulations! I am so happy that things are so well! Enjoy your time in Xian. It is a wonderful city!

    Mom to Emma, Olivia, and Celia

  2. We are all so excited! She is wonderful. We are printing the new pictures to post on the "scrapbook" wall. Beth and all at UNS

  3. Congrats!! She is so adorable, looks like she has a "lot of personality" and will be a lot of fun. All the Brandons are anxious to meet her.

    Best wishes from Tom & Bonnie
