The World

Once upon a time, an absolutely ordinary family found out the most gut wrenching, terrifying news about their fetus. They didn't know if they would be able to carry the baby to term and if they would ever get to hold their little girl in their arms.

They started a little blog so everyone could stay updated, on that 45% chance that their baby would make it.

Fast track three years later, a close family friend wanders into a candy store in Tel Aviv, to pick something up. She turns to the store owner, and asks that he pray for a little girl with half a heart, Tehilla bat Shoshana, as she recovers from her fourth heart surgery.

His response: Are you kidding? I've been praying for her non-stop. We all are. This whole country knows about her and are praying.

Our blog family is huge and worldwide. You have all played a crucial role in our heart journey. Thank you from the bottom of our family's four and a half hearts.


  1. No one will believe how this little miracle baby suffered and survived. I know only one thing, it is HaShem'will what happened that we may trust him and know rgat He is real. B"H!
    Abba, continue to pour out your blessings upon this lovely family until forever. We want still to see Tehilla with the crown of Princess, healthy, beautiful,intelligent child of yours. Amein.

  2. Here in Toronto, Canada we are also following Tehilla's amazing journey and praying for her good health and happiness and wishing you all strength.

  3. I am praying for her and your whole family. I live in Florida and I have shared your blog with many friends. We all enjoy hearing of her ability to overcome these awful obstacles and marvel at your strength and conviction. Keep it up!!!
