Need a miracle?

Since 2003, we've added thousands of new subscribers to our daily brief, so many of you are unaware of the trials and tribulations that we've faced as a family here in Israel. In 2003 our first child, Elianna, was born with an extremely rare eye condition, which in effect caused her to be blind. As newly inaugurated parents, we were completely shell shocked on receiving the news from the doctors.
