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

Happy Weekend Everyone!  We pray you are all doing well : )
We found out that our son was in a lot of pain this week and we thought his leg had broken again.  He went to the doctor and they realized that the metal rod in his leg is what is causing so much pain.  He will have surgery on Monday to remove the rod and hopefully alleviate his suffering.  We are not sure the details of what the next steps are in his health journey, we will keep you updated.
Please keep our son in your prayers, his bone breaks, health scares, and surgeries seem to be never ending!  He just wants to be a normal kid, with a normal family, who can walk normally.  He just wants to play and eat, run, walk, laugh, learn and go to school, dance, live and love like we all do.  
Please pray for his doctors, his surgery, his overall health.  Please pray for his caretakers, his courage, and his strength to get through this!  We are praying for miracles, and we are missing our child SO MUCH!!  Please pray for our finances and our fundraising efforts as well, it never gets easier asking and praying for money, but we are always humbled by the support of loved ones and even strangers. : ) 

If anyone feels led to give financially this week, please do, we will appreciate it so much, and he will as well! 
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend and have a great start to the week! : )
Love,
Stephanie and Jacob Hanks
