It is with great pride (and sadness, because I'm so far away) that I announce the birth of my new niece, Kaylee Julianna Parsons. She was born on June 24th, 2009 to my sister, Kelly and brother-in-law, Jamie. She is welcomed also by her older sister Elle and her older brother Christian. Thanks to great technology, I was able to skype with my family while they were in the hospital an hour or so after her birth! It was awesome. I am very sad to be in Africa at this time, but I am counting down the days until I can hold her and love her up!
