Baby Mac #2 – McIntosh

Thanks for visiting our profile and learning more about our family and our journey. Adoption is a long and sometimes difficult process, but we know and believe that adoption, first and foremost, is a beautiful reflection of the gospel – that we have been adopted into God’s forever family by the grace of Christ. As the apostle Paul writes, “God predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will” (Ephesians 1:5). Even as God shows His love to His children, we desire to share our love with a child.

Thanks to the Chosen Marathon, this dream of adopting a second child is getting closer. The Chosen Marathon was instrumental in helping us raise funds to adopt our first child, Hope. We were able to adopt her through a local agency called Adoption Angels. We plan to use the same agency again! Because the costs – both financial and emotional – of adopting are high, we are excited to have a team of our friends and family members running with us, cheering us on, and supporting us through their prayers and generous donations. We would love to have you to join us too! If you feel led to support us, we’d be deeply grateful. We are so excited and thankful to be adding to our family!

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.
