Shana Tovah

I’ve been going back and forth about writing. It is too hard to explain what it’s like having babies in the Nicu. Intensive to say the least. I’m having a hard time updating anyone. I find myself trying to avoid seeing anyone, so I won’t have to answer any questions… Things change from moment to moment. It is 2 steps forward, one step back. Sometimes 1 step forward, 2 steps back…
I’m physically and emotionally drained to say the least. Still trying to heal from my c section. Trying to keep my milk supply up. This is definitely taking its toll…

After realizing how difficult it is for me to get to and from the hospital, two good friends took the initiative and made an on-line campaign to raise funds to help. I am blown away by the outpouring of love and generosity. Here is the link:

Please continue your prayers for our little girls

מיה אמונה בת גאוליה שומרונה
זהר אושר אביה בת גאוליה שומרונה



Shana Tova U’Metuka.
May this new year bring us all peace, health and many blessings (even in small packages…)

  1. When my youngest was 2 weeks old he had to be rehospitalized with a serious infection for 6 weeks. I only had four kids at home, oldest 12, and I basically lived in the hospital, nursing and pumping. Then for the last month or so I would go home for the afternoon and evening to see the kids, cook dinner, do laundry and then return to the hospital. It sounds a bit crazy, but we survived. He was in the Children’s ward, so a neighbor organized care for him when I wasn’t there, and another neighbor made sure the big ones had lunch. It’s almost 30 years…

  2. We did a 2.5 month stint in the NICU when our son was born. I know what you are going through if you need a shoulder or an ear.

  3. Hi! This is Giela (Nussbaum), we lived in the same building when your family was in Riverdale, New York many years ago…I now live near Rachel Weinstein in Cleveland & she sent me your inspiring blog! We are praying for your sweet baby girls with the beautiful names. May they grow healthy, big & strong. We are rooting for all of you & thank you for sharing your journey with us 🙂
