More info on our daughter

We received the growth report yesterday and found out alot of history on our daughter. Fist of all her name, Hongyan, means :

Hong: grand and extensive
Yan: beautiful

She was found at Fuli Road on May 14th with her umbilical cord still attached and bound up. She was dressed in red (red means lucky) cotton clothes and wrapped in a white (white means morning) quilt. She was taken to the local police and then to the welfare institute. She weighed 7.37 lbs and was 20.49" in height. She has not had any serious illness. She was placed in foster care on Sept 10, 2005. We are so happy and very lucky to find she is living in a family atmosphere. Her development appears to be in the normal range. We have heard from other families with Wuwei daughters that the babies are very well loved, cared for and that we are very lucky to have been referred a Wuwei daughter. WOW!!!
