Baker Family Adoption

First, we sincerely appreciate your interest in assisting our adoption journey. We are incredibly humbled to be in a position of such great need. Ideally, we would be able to pay every fee from our income, but financially we cannot and must trust in God’s ability to provide through others. We invite you to join us in prayer for our children, for our entrance into parenthood, and for God’s provision along our journey. For those who are able to contribute financially, we are forever grateful for your generosity.

A little bit about us: We met in 2002 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, TN. and were married in 2005. During those dating years, we knew that at some point we wanted to adopt children. Four years into our marriage, we began the process of trying to have a baby. After three years without conception, doctors confirmed that we need medical treatments to overcome infertility. We sought counsel from mentors and friends who shared our struggle, and their wisdom was invaluable. We chose Gladney Adoptions out of Fort Worth to be our agency, and the country we picked is Taiwan. We feel called to adopt siblings instead of an individual child. Sibling groups are considered special needs solely because it’s more than one child, and are often over looked. These children are also older, as it is not easy to be adopted out with a brother or sister attached.

Originally we chose Taiwan because we found two adorable children, a boy and girl under 6. Their birth mother got to choose who would parent them, and they we adopted, but by a different family. It was not an easy thing for us to accept that what we imagined wasn’t what God had planned for us. We continued with our home study, back ground checks, and endless paper work. We got notified that our status moved to “Waiting and approved” aka WAP. We got a letter from homeland security clearing us for international adoption. Despite all this, we know that we will be matched to the correct children and are waiting to know which ones they will be.

As we celebrate and reflect on ten years of marriage, we believe God has been preparing us for this season of our lives, and we are so excited to share our life and our love with these precious children. Thank you for walking beside us on this adventure!

**AN IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION FROM ABBA FUND ABOUT YOUR DONATION**
Using the online form on this page automatically submits a request to preference your gift to the family profiled on this page as part of ABBA Fund’s Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund. ABBA Fund administers this fund and maintains full control and administration of all donated funds. We also strive to honor our donor’s preference requests in accordance with IRS and Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA) guidelines.

The IRS allows donors to state a preference of how their contribution is used and request that the gift support a particular family — and it allows the charitable organization (ABBA Fund) to fully consider that request as long as the donor understands and acknowledges for charitably given tax-deductible gifts that the ultimate authority regarding the disposition of your gift is at the discretion of the charitable organization. By using this online form, or other method described above, you are acknowledging an understanding of those IRS guidelines.

As required by IRS regulations, any tax-deductible donation is made to the charitable organization (ABBA Fund) and not the individual (family) — otherwise it is a non-deductible gift and should be given directly to the family. Every gift into the Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund is helping reduce the financial burden of adoption for families that have qualified for adoption assistance from ABBA Fund.

ABBA Fund is grateful for each donation given to the Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund, and broad participation in the fund helps ensure that ABBA Fund is able to assist each approved family with the grant and loan funds preferenced to reduce the financial burden of their adoption. ABBA Fund, a 501(c)(3) ministry, has provided more than $5.7 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 979 orphans become sons and daughters in 854 Christian families since 2004 (as of early 2015) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
