Soulmate

Haya and Israel met in Alaska. When their son, Avihai, was born, they discovered he had Down Syndrome, so they decided to adopt Keren, a baby girl who was also born with Down Syndrome, so that Avihai wouldn’t grow up on his own. The family then decides to immigrate to Israel, despite the fact that it means Haya has to leave behind her children from a previous marriage. In Israel, they settle in Safed and adopt four more children with Down Syndrome. A few months ago, Avihai married his adopted sister Keren.
