Meet Lillian Mae Xiaoshuang Briscoe

Hi all - We did it! Everything went just has it should and Lillian (whom I'll be calling Lily) is all mine! Still hard to believe, but wonderful. Hopefully the pictures made it into this post. I can post, but I can't see the blog still.
She's great. She didn't cry at all during the chaos of the exchange with the other 7 babies, she just took it all in. Neither did I, actually. I see it coming for both of us. Right now we're just trying to get used to each other. Going well. I kept waiting for her to wake up for a bottle - for 3 hours. She went to sleep at 9pm, and it's 5:15am and she still sleeping! Making other moms jealous already. But, she had a BIG day. Love to all, Maryellen


  • YEAH! I was checking in hopes you had access over there.
    Lily ("BB"-- which I promise to stop using after a few months/years), welcome to the most loving/amazing family & the best mom!
    Love to all & safe travels home!

  • Does anyone see the resemblence to Grandpa Tom? It's almost scary.

  • Congratulations! It's hard to tell who looks happier - Lily or mom! Stevie's been staring at the pictures; I think he wants a playdate. Have a safe trip back

  • Mel,
    Mario and I are absolutely thrilled for you! What a precious smile Lily has! It's magical!
    We were so sorry to miss the festivities in April as we were travelling. We can't wait to meet her and give both big hugs!
    Love Jen and Mario DiFalco

  • Mary Ellen and Miss Lily,
    Congratulations to you both!! You both look so happy and connected. Lily does indeed resemble the family with her glowing joy and smile. As a friend of ours said, there is a red ribbon that runs around the world and if you follow it, you will find your baby. We can't argue when we see these pictures. What a lovely blessing you are to each other! We hope to meet Miss Lily soon.
    Much Love Miss Mary Ellen and Lily,
    Mary Beth and Jerry Govier
