Batzel Family Adoption

Early in our marriage we knew that we desired to adopt a child someday. Matt’s grandfather was an orphan and Nikki’s first job after college was with an international adoption agency, so we saw God’s deep love for orphans and the great need for families to open their hearts through adoption. Life happened at rapid speed for several years as we were blessed with 4 biological children and moved 3 times– all in 4 years!

As life slowed down a bit, we felt the timing was right to begin our adoption from China in October, 2013. We were told it would probably take 18 months before we were matched with a child. We spent the fall and winter completing our home study and collecting documents before sending our bundle of paperwork to China last April. Just nine months later, in July, our adoption agency added several new files to their “waiting children list.” Amongst them was an adorable 13 month old baby girl with rosy cheeks, wearing a pink snowsuit. We requested to view her file, and the sweet girl captured our hearts! We formally requested to adopt her, and will be calling her Chloe Rose. We’re praying we can travel to bring Chloe home this winter.

International adoption is expensive, and we were matched with Chloe more quickly than anticipated. She has medical needs and deserves love and proper care as soon as possible. Financially, we’re over half way there, but our goal is to have the remaining $18,000 funded by November 30th, 2014 so we can travel to get Chloe without delay.

We’ve been so encouraged by the interest, prayers, and words of support we’ve received. Please consider partnering with us financially to bring Chloe out of China’s orphanage system and home to her forever family. All gifts given through Abba Fund are tax deductible.
