Please consider donating to our team fundraiser!!

Chosen Marathon Donations ABBA Fund

Hello – we’re DJ and Jeny Pighetti. Thank you for taking the time to get to know us and our daughters, Mackenzie and Avery. We were first drawn to adoption in 2010 after a very difficult pregnancy and the loss of our son, Jack at 2 months old. We still felt the desire to grow our family and since biology was no longer an option for us, we turned to adoption.

On August 23, 2011 we got the phone call that changed our lives. We’d been chosen to be the parents of a beautiful baby girl that we would bring home that very evening!! We are in awe of the ways that God has used our story and our family to bless others and to clearly show a picture of Christ’s love for us.

In March of 2013 we felt called to adopt domestically again and began the process of bringing home a sibling for our girls. Both girls are very excited about having a new baby although they differ on which kind – Mackenzie would like a brother and Avery would like a sister. Either way, we know that this baby will be smothered with Big Sister Love!

Why Run…~From Jeny~
When I first stumbled on the idea of training for and running this half-marathon I was terrified. Running is my least favorite thing in the entire world, but knowing that God was calling us to use this opportunity to help bring home our baby I couldn’t say no!! Please prayerfully consider walking (or running 😉 this journey with me. There are several ways you can help:

  • Run with me – several friends and family members have already committed to run/walk with me. We would love to have you join – or even show up to cheer us on!
  • Contribute – prayerfully consider making a donation that will help alleviate the financial burden of bringing home the newest Baby Pighetti.
  • Pray – this is by far the most important!! I will need some serious prayer and encouragement to finish this. I don’t expect this to be easy and I know that I won’t be able to make it through on my own strength. God has provided an amazing opportunity for us and I’m honored to have this chance.

In Him,
Jeny
“The LORD is my strength and my song, and He has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise Him, my father’s God and I will exalt Him.”

**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.

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 support from ABBA Fund — including the family listed above in their online Family Adoption Fund profile.

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.

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 $5.4 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 972 orphans become sons and daughters in loving, nurturing homes through assistance to 827 Christian families since 2004 (as of fall 2014) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.

ABBA Fund shared Senator Roy Blunt's post.

Senator Roy Blunt

This week, I re-introduced a bill to make adoption more affordable for hardworking families by making the current adoption tax credit fully refundable. I’m encouraged by the bipartisan support we’ve received for this bill and, as co-chair of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption, I’ll continue advancing policies that help connect children in need of homes with families that are eager to adopt. https://www.blunt.senate.gov/public/index.cfm/2017/4/blunt-casey-introduce-legislation-to-make-adoption-tax-credit-fully-refundable

Tears ... but what a legacy and impact that will continue for years and years

Christian Alliance for Orphans

It has been one year since the passing of our beloved Dr. Karyn Purvis. Her absence is still so deeply felt. Yet the good fruit of her work continues to grow in countless lives.

This short video of Dr. Purvis reminds of the soul that bubbled up into all she did.
