The Story

Almost 4 years ago we fell in love with a child in Uganda.  We have been caring for him from afar and working towards adoption since then!
He is a wonderful child, he is around 11 years old, and has many medical needs.  This is an urgent situation as he needs medical treatment in the US.  He has had many surgeries since we met him, on his legs, he has extremely fragile bones that keep fracturing and breaking.  We miss him deeply and dearly and cannot wait to see him again and to have him here as family.  He has many educational needs as well.  We are praying for miracles and provision to have him here as soon as possible, and for him to be healthy and happy!! 

Can you help us to all be reunited as a family?
THANK YOU IN ADVANCE for your help!!!! : )
Love, Jacob & Stephanie Hanks

Hello to all of our wonderful supporters, family, and friends- and HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
2018 is going to be a big year for all of us- I can feel it!  

I cant remember if I already updated this, but we were able to receive 2 grants last year:  Forever Families Foundation $1250, and Help us Adopt $7,500.  We applied for a lot of grants and are so, so grateful for the opportunity to receive these two. : )

Our son got malaria around Christmas day, but is recovering nicely and in treatment.  For now all of our information is being reviewed in Uganda, and we are waiting on a court date, and praying for February. 

We are still fundraising, so please share this page!!  We need all the help we can get.  We made some sales on our etsy site around the holidays, that was really helpful! www.etsy.com/shop/beautifulpursuit.  And we just wanted to express gratitude to all of you who have financially contributed to our adoption.  Thanks again for all of your help!  Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers!! : )  Happy 2018! We pray it is a blessed year for all of us!!

Hey yall! Hope everyone is well. Just wanted to give a few updates. Our son currently is being treated for typhoid so please, please pray for his fast and full recovery.
We finally got a grant after applying to many, the Forever Families Foundation sent $1250 to our agency this week. : ) we are so grateful.
We have sent our completed dossier (massive packet of documents, reports, and files) to our agency, the next step is they will send it to Uganda and we will finally have a time line on the end steps. : )

We appreciate your prayers and support so much. Please share our fundraiser, we are still in desperate need of funds. Enjoy the rest of your week.
