Another Answered Prayer

We mentioned in a previous post that we hope to be able to have Baby B in Prague, once we arrive. One of the big hurdles we need to clear in order for this to be a reality is to secure a "reservation" in our preferred maternity hospital. If we were already living in the Czech Republic, this probably wouldn't be such a big deal, but trying to accomplish this from several thousand miles away is a little daunting. 

Thankfully, we have two amazing colleagues who have been working on this for us. They both delivered their children in Prague, and they're both familiar with the system. Today was the target day for doing the preliminary (online) registration, and though they did everything correctly, they failed to secure our much-needed slot. (There are only so many reservations accepted at each maternity hospital.)

This was the news we awoke to this morning - "registration unsuccessful". It was disappointing, to say the least. However, we knew that we had prayed over this process; we knew there were many others praying for this process. Christiana sent a quick e-mail just letting our friends know that we were continuing to pray for them as they attempted to register us.

Just before 11 p.m. today (Prague time), one of the ladies logged back onto the hospital's site and noticed that it looked "different" from her earlier attempts today. She plugged in Christiana's vital info again and - Viola! The registration went through without any further complications! What an answer to prayer!

All they must do now is appear at the hospital in person, and present copies of our identification & proof of insurance in order to finalize our reservation. Please continue to pray that they will not have any problems completing the paperwork on our behalf.
