Our beloved first grade teacher Tanya Nguyen was brutally attacked Wednesday night in an attempted carjacking outside of her house. She was stabbed 10 times. She is currently in hospital recovering. We also learned that she is 11 weeks pregnant with her first baby. As of today the baby has a heartbeat. She was having surgery last night as her lung was punctured. 

This tragic news has us all crestfallen. She is a ray of sunshine who nutures our children & gives of herself in the most loving, pure way. We want to help cushion her time off & medical bills with donations. 

Please help. Thank you so much.

Hello world! I am Tanya, the "Pregnant school teacher stabbed" a couple weeks ago. I haven't been on social media since all this happened but am slowly catching up to all the posts of concern and love from all of you. I am so overwhelmed by the outpour of support, generosity, and compassion from you. Thank you so much for your prayers and well wishes. I am so touched by the donations, cards, flowers , and messages.

"Where there is great love, there are always miracles."

Indeed , it's a miracle that I'm here and the baby is well. And I have my faith and your support to thank for that. It's been so uplifting.

So to let you know what's going on:

I got the staples and stitches off my back, upper arm, chest, and face, off a few days ago. Except for the ones on my left hand and wrist. That's where the worst damage is, the stabs that severed my nerves there. In 2 weeks it's recommended I can get teeth, guaranteeing my lips have time to heal by then. Then around the same time I'll get the wrapping and stitches off my left arm/hand...if all looks well I can start hand therapy to use my hand again. My goal is to have full use of my hand before the baby arrives!

Today we visited the Ob/Gyn, and the baby couldn't be in better condition. He/she looked and sounded stellar.

Some ask, "Are you planning to move?" "Are you afraid of going back?" "Do you have reservations now about your city?" My answer is NO.

I love our home, and I refuse to let a bad moment ruin all the great memories and happiness that we built there.

There's more good than bad in this world. Love conquers all. This incident will not change me. I'm still me. I'm still smiling, positive, but now stronger than ever.

Again, from the bottom of my heart...my little family and I want to say, THANK YOU for being there, thank you for being my guardian angels.

Tanya
