A mother who lost her daughter in 2015 to a West Bank terror attack, has given birth to a baby girl on exactly the same birthday as her late daughter. The new baby, delivered naturally at Israel’s Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer, represents a miraculous ray of hope for the family.

Four years after losing her daughter to injuries sustained during an stone-throwing attack in the West Bank, Israeli mother Adva Bitton has given birth to a new baby girl at Sheba Medical Center, Tel HaShomer. The baby was born on the same birth date of her late sister, Adele Bitton, and marks a new chapter in the family’s life.

“Just as we live with our loss 24/7, we are choosing life and continue to bring life into the world,” said Bitton.

In 2013, Bitton was traveling through the West Bank when her vehicle was assaulted by Palestinian teenagers pelting her vehicle with rocks. Bitton lost control of the car, and the resulting accident caused her daughter Adele to suffer a traumatic and ultimately fatal brain injury.

After this senseless tragedy, there is reason for hope again. The new baby arrived on May 20 and was delivered naturally at Israel’s Sheba Medical Center.

Sheba Medical Center has a long and documented history of fostering peace through medicine. The hospital provides cutting-edge treatment and life-saving operations for all children, regardless of their religion, race or nationality.

Sheba Medical Center is the largest and most comprehensive hospital in the Middle East, and was recently named one of the “10 Best Hospitals in the World” by Newsweek Magazine.
