Welcome, Nila

Little Nila arrived to the airport in Israel early this morning after a long journey. She and her mum travelled with 3 other families, and we took her straight to the hospital for her first assessment. Nila was sweet during the car journey, and did very well in her echo and ECG, just crying a little bit. She is about 7 months old now, and has a diagnosis of Downs Syndrome.

Her echo today confirmed the AV canal diagnosed in Kurdistan. The doctors need to discuss whether she first needs a catheterisation, or if they can go ahead with surgery straight away.
For now, they are back at the house here in Jaffa and we hope and pray that they are settling in well.
