Berry Family Adoption

Hello!!! 🙂

Thank you for taking the time to read our page and learn about our adoption journey! We are so excited and thankful to the Lord for leading us to adopt through a local agency in Mississippi, and will most likely be matched with an infant within the state. It is clear that God’s heart is to care for the orphan, and we praise Him that He has, in this way, made our hearts like His (Psalm 10:14-18, Psalm 68:5-6, Psalm 146:9). We desire to please God and to have children to love on and care for. We believe that children are blessings from the Lord (Psalm 127:3-5) and desire to raise up children to love God and to follow Him with all of their hearts. The ultimate reason that we desire to adopt is because we see it as a picture of the Gospel. We are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). We have disobeyed God countless times. We will all die a physical death, and after that we will face the judgment (Hebrews 9:27). We deserve to be punished with eternal death because of our sin against a Holy God (Romans 6:23). Our sins have separated us from God (Isaiah 59:2). A lot of people try to bridge this gap by doing “good works” or attempting to keep the law. The Bible tells us that all this is vain, and that all of our righteous deeds are like “filthy rags” (Isaiah 64:6). We cannot even come close to bridging the gap between us by trying to work our way into heaven (Titus 3:5). Apart from a work of God on our behalf, we are without hope. BUT GOD, made a way for filthy sinners to be reconciled to Himself. He did this by taking on flesh in the form of a baby named Jesus. Jesus came on a rescue mission to save sinners (John 3:16). He is 100% God, 100% man, and He perfectly obeyed the law at all times. Jesus grew into a man, was tempted in all ways, but remained completely sinless (1 Peter 2:22). He spent His life calling people to repent and believe in the Gospel (Mark 1:15). When the hour had come, Jesus willingly laid His life down on a Roman cross. He died for our sins (1 Corinthians 15: 3). God made Jesus, who knew no sin, to be sin for us that we might become the righteousness of God in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21). God placed all of our sins on Jesus at the cross and He absorbed the payment for them – the wrath of the Father. God the Father poured out all of the wrath that we deserve on His Son, the Savior Christ Jesus (Isaiah 53:10-11, Isaiah 64:5, Romans 5:9). He paid the price we deserve to pay in our stead (1 Peter 2:24, 1 Peter 3:18). This was a demonstration of His love and reveals His amazing grace (Romans 5:8, Ephesians 2:8). By grace we are saved, through faith, and this is not of ourselves, it is a gift of God not of works lest anyone should boast (Ephesians 2:8-9). By repenting and believing in the Gospel, we are made right with God (Mark 1:15). As a result of Jesus’s redemptive act, those who look to Him in faith are credited with the righteousness of Christ and are no longer separated from God, but are made to be His children. God sent His Son to redeem us, that we might receive the adoption as sons (Galatians 4:4-7). Redemption is the work of God in Christ and is by grace alone. Christ Jesus not only died for our sins, but three days later He rose from the dead, defeating death and defeating the grave (Acts 2:24). Now, He is seated at the right hand of God and always lives to make intercession for us (Hebrews 7:25). The Scripture tells us, “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved” (Acts 16:31). “If you confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him for the dead you will be saved” (Romans 10:9-10). Redemption brings the blessings of forgiveness of sin, peace with God, and eternal life (Romans 4:5‐8, Romans 5:1, Romans 5:21, Romans 6:23). This is the picture we want our adoption to display, a picture of His redeeming love. We pray that God would be greatly glorified through our lives.

**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.
