About Me & My Site 4

natanshai.comHi, I’m Hannah, Natan Shai’s Mom,

I am happily married to my best friend Naor,  and we live in a little town called Tzfat in the North of Israel.  My husband is Israeli and I am originally from Bournemouth in the U.K.  We met in Key West, Florida about 30 years ago whilst travelling 🙂

We have five biological children and another three children with special needs who were born from the heart and are with us in permanent foster care. Natan Shai is the eldest of our foster children and he’s been with us ever since he was about 4 months old. He is a huge inspiration, hence my desire to call this website after him.

Due to Natan Shai’s special needs, and the fact that I can’t go out to work a regular day job,  I work from home doing Website Building and Internet Marketing and I love it!  It gives me the freedom to take care of my special needs kids and my own children and still be able to make an income online.

I made this website to help other parents with Hydranencephaly children (or similar conditions).  I hope to post regularly about helpful and interesting topics and also share our experiences from living with a child who has extreme special needs. I will share with you the joys and tribulations that are involved and hopefully inspire others and help bridge the gap between special needs children and society at large.

Please feel free to connect with me either via the ‘contact’ button at the bottom of my site or here below in the comments.

You can also find us on Facebook:


I would LOVE to hear from you 🙂

Much Love,

Hannah (Natan Shai’s Mom)

    It inspired me as I read your About Me page and how you are dedicating the site to your child, Natan Shai. I wish you the strength and the spirit to continue to embrace the wonderful role that you have in the lives of your children as well as in the lives of the other families who are facing the same challenges as you are.

      Hi Shierly, thanks so much! I’m glad you liked reading 🙂 That’s cool you have a daughter called Hannah, I actually changed my name to Hannah about 25 years ago! Enjoy your children, they grow up so fast. If you’d like to read about Natan Shai and how we got him you can see it here. Take care! Hannah X
