Introducing.........Bliss Theresa Pei Weiler
On July 3, after almost 2 years of paperwork and waiting we finally received our first pictures of our daughter. Her Chinese name is Sui Hua Pei (pronounced Swee Who-wah Pay). We were told that she is called Pei Pei in the orphanage. She lives in the SuiXi County Social Welfare Institute. SuiXi County is located in the southern-most tip of China. She was found abandoned on September 9th in the town of Beipo in front of the rural credit cooperative. She weighed 6 pounds 1 ounce and was 18.5 inches long. They estimated September 9th to also be her date of birth. We have been given a small amount of information about her. We know that she had a medical exam on May 12th. At that time she weighed 17.2 pounds and was 22 inches long.
