A Tiny Baby and a Big Miracle!

Sara Miriam Gross

Hi! Our names are Aryeh, Pesach and Avrohom Yaacov Lehrfeld, from Kiryat Sefer, Israel. Aryeh is 11, Pesach is 9, and Avrohom Yaacov is eight years old. We’d like to tell you about our baby sister Chanie, who was born a preemie.

Wednesday, March 30, 2011

Aryeh: Chanie was in the hospital for four months after she was born. In the beginning she was in an incubator (a special, enclosed crib that keeps premature babies, otherwise known as preemies, warm and away from germs.) She was in the incubator until she was around two months old and weighed 1700 grams. At first, the hospital staff didn’t let us touch her but when she was a month old, they let us touch her. We took turns visiting her during those months. We each went with our parents once a week. On Friday the three of us boys went without our parents. We brought Chanie milk each week because our parents couldn’t go on Erev Shabbos.
