    "New Happy Family: Korean Orphan Finds Her Home
    A San Diego couple, whose own two sons are grown men, have adopted a nine-year-old Korean orphan.
    Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Peltcher, 4288 48th St., who met little Young Sil through the mail more than a year ago, last wek met her in person at Los Angeles International Airport and brought her home.
    Peltcher, 58, and his wife, Ava, 55, said their house was empty without children so they decided to adopt a Korean orphan.
    Surprised At First
    "At first we were surprised that we could adopt at our age, but then we were very glad," Peltcher said.
    "An American teacher, working for the U.S. government in Korea, first put us in touch with Sil. We exchanged letters and pictures, and then tapes.
    Peltcher said that the girl recognized them as soon as she got off the jet at the airport.
    "She ran up to me and hugged me. She called me 'Daddy,'" he said.
    Sil decided that she wanted to be called Susan and now her official name is Susan Young Sil Peltcher.
    Her father said she is adjusting very well to American life.
    She loves hot dogs and strawberry ice cream and she is very proud of being a 'Peltcher family girl.' Families are very important in Korea and she's never had one before.
    In First Grade
    "When we brought her home the first time, we explained to her that this was her home now and she didn't have to worry. Tears welled up in her eyes, but she bravely shook her head and said, 'Not cry,' he said.
    The girl, who learned some English while she was in Korea, is a first grader at the Euclid School. The principal said he wanted to give her a chance to start from the beginning.
    "She is a very bright young girl. After we met her at the airport, we came down to San Diego by bus. She talked to the driver and he gave her some gum," Peltcher said.
    "She wanted to know about everything. We are very glad to have her, and we love her very much." The Peltchers worked with the County Dept. of Social Welfare and the WAIF-International Social Service group to adopt Susan."
