Have you contacted Hosts for Hospitals? We have worked with them in the past. We live very close to CHOP but unfortunately only have 1 guest room. I also have a toddler named Zoe and your story breaks my heart! You have my email and I will keep an dear out for 2 bed sublets. All the best to you and your family!

My name is Joy, I'm a nurse, and a mommy to a miracle child born at CHOP'S SDU back in February 2009. Isaiah was 1 of the first babies born there. It is absolutely an amazing place to give birth as well as an amazing facility to care for our babies. We stayed at the Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House. Our son had surgery at 6 days old. He's had a total of 22 surgeries so far, and is 5 years old today. He amazes us daily. He remains undiagnosed, but he is here because God intervened, as well as pointed us in the direction of CHOP and doctors who tenderly cared and continue to care for Isaiah. Just know we have walked in similar shoes, and if you ever want to talk or ask questions about CHOP, I am available. Just give me a more private way to pass on my phone number. We've spent almost 6 years going to CHOP and know a lot about it. Would love to help. Here is Isaiah's blog and email
Will be praying for all of you.

Hi Ali!
So glad to hear all the help that's been pouring in. Not sure if you've been receiving any emails from me, but in case you haven't, there is a couple in the city who might have a place for you. Perhaps you could email me back when you get the chance!

Whoops - I just looked and I replied to your friends but forgot to let you know that I'd gotten the e-mail in the first place. Thank you so much! :-)
