"We are very excited; we've waited a long time for her to come home," said Adva Biton, Adele's mother. "We continue to believe that she will be alright."


As they were leaving the hospital, Adva told Adele, who is bound to a wheelchair, of the family's plans for Shabbat.


"The entire family will have Shabbat dinner and Adele will be with us. I'm certain this will improve (her condition). The fact that the doctors authorized us to take her home for Shabbat indicates that her condition is better," said the mother.


The mother said the family also plans to sing to Adele her favorite songs, as they have done throughout her stay at the hospital.
