My name is Shimi and I am a special child. My father and mother told me that they lived in Brazil and one day decided to come to Eretz Yisrael. Why? Because they were people that were looking for truth and good in this world. They came to Israel and started a new life, without family or anyone that they knew. They have build a wonderful family here (Nissim, Bracha, Channa, Moshe and myself) and have educated us with dedication and love.
In the first years my father learned Torah and my mother worked. My father told me these years were the sweetest for him. However, today my father works very hard and my mother is busy at home because of what I told you that I am a “special child” and my body functions in a different way, meaning that I need special attention and care .
I’m 4 years old and I still crawl. We live in an apartment on the 3rd floor without an elevator. My father and mother bring me upstairs with my wheelchair, many times in a day. I see how hard it is for them. Also because our house is so small and crowded they work very hard so that we can survive.
There are a lot of people that know my mother and father and said that they want to help us move to a bigger apartment on the bottom floor of a building. When this happens, I’ll be able to play more in the courtyard and go around . This would be so good for me.
The people that are helping us are working very hard to reach the large amount of money we need to buy such an apartment. Perhaps you also want to help my family, and me. You would be zoche to a lot of mitzvas and gamilas chesed. I will daven that just as much as you made us happy, Hashem should also make you happy!
