Prayers for Hannes

One of the ways that you can support us in our adoption of Hannes is to pray for us.  We are asking for prayer that God would bring about a miracle of sorts.

The last day for dossiers to be submitted in Hannes's country this year is Thursday.

We received our immigration approval today at 2:20 pm.  We notarized the document at 2:30 pm.  We drove to downtown Los Angeles to apostille the document.  We left our town at 2:45 pm and arrived in front of the State building at 4:20 pm. (Keep in mind it is 26 miles - this is LA traffic and a semi truck had broken down on the freeway) The office that does apostilles is open until 4:30.  We just made it.  She finished apostilling our document at 4:45.  We had a 10 minute drive to the DHL office.  They stop accepting packages at 5:00 pm.  We got there at 4:55pm.   We filled out the paperwork and paid and finished at 4:59.

They will guarantee delivery to our child's country by end of day Thursday.

Please pray that it arrives in the morning, 
so that there is time to submit it to the government before the deadline.

If it misses this deadline, it will sit until January 17 - the next day that dossiers are allowed to be submitted. 

Thank you for your prayers, this means so much to Hannes, who spends every day and night in his crib, only having interactions through crib bars with 2 others kids in his infirmary room.  He needs medical attention, and the sooner we can get to him, the sooner he can be evaluated by a pediatric cardiologist and begin the treatment that will save his life.


  1. I am thankful not for "coincidences" but a God who sets Diving appointments. I am praying for His perfect timing in connection with Hannes.

  2. God has done so much for us - making a way where we thought there was no way. Whether it gets there in time or not - we worship an amazing God who loves us in so many ways each and every day! I am so thankful for my Lord.
