Hi everyone! We are Noa (30) and Idan (37). We are a Jewish family living in Shanghai, China for the last five years. We moved here with a dream that many young people have, to be happy, work and to be able to carry ourselves financially in dignity without being a burden on our elderly parents. We work hard and enjoying China's culture. After many years of trying to have a baby, we finally got the good news that we are pregnant!
Our fairy tale wasn't without trouble... I got sick and had to have my appendix removed while I'm 3 months pregnant. After that, I had pregnancy diabetics and then at 7 months, I got pneumonia that caused me to be hospitalized for two weeks. My childbirth was scary and difficult, at 32 weeks of pregnancy I got my intestines torn and was rushed to emergency surgery my husband was told that he should say his goodbyes before it will be too late, luckily, I and the baby came out safe (he was born week 32 and 1.7kg). I was in ICU for 2 weeks and Jeremy was in Intensive care for babies for 2.5 weeks in which we couldn’t touch him.
Today, Jeremy Joseph Yahav is a happy, smart and loving little boy. We finally almost done paying all the medical bills (around $40k). And now, to our Surprise, we are pregnant again but without the money for the delivery. Here is where YOU come into our story and can give us our happy ending that we dream about.
We always wanted a family... But after 3 years of trying to get pregnant without success the dream started to slip away from us. But when all hope ran out we were excited to find out we are about to become parents. Although all the obstacles along the way we now are super proud parents to 13 months old Jeremy. 3 months ago, something we did not expect or planned happened and we are now... Pregnant again. Very excited and extremely happy of course but... Worry. We don't have the money to cover the cesarean section I need to get the new family member out to the world. We both hard working people but still because of the unplanned pregnancy we didn't have the time to save money for the operation. We just paid about 4,000$ for a pre-natal test for the pregnancy but the C section itself cost another 11,000-15,000$ in a hospital that we can trust to be reliable, clean and understanding (English speaking and be able to see the baby after birth and stay in the same room which is not common in China). We now need your help. The help of good people that want and can make a difference in a young family that still believe in people goodness. We want our little unborn baby to be born to a world of unconditional love and that mutual support will be the base of the education in our house.
