Blackmon Family Adoption

Before marriage, we both had a heart for adoption. So soon after getting married (1 year anniversary) we decided to start the process of adoption! We quickly got connected with our agency, Lifeline in Birmingham, and were soon led by God to start the adoption process from Kyrgyzstan.

This quote by Dr. Moore from his book “Adopted for Life” really hits home for us, “When we adopt, and when we encourage a culture of adoption in our churches and communities, we’re picturing something that’s true about God. We, like Jesus, see what our Father is doing and do likewise (John 5:19). And what our Father is doing, it turns out, is fighting for orphans, making them sons and daughters.”

We have almost completed our home study and hope to have our dossier in country by early 2015.

We know God called us to adopt and we are confident he will be with us every step. We would also like to ask our friends and family (and even strangers who may be reading this) to consider making a donation to our family to help us with the cost of adopting.

Also, we would covet your prayers for us during this process. Pray that we trust God’s timing, that we don’t grow weary in our faith, that we get matched with a child sooner than later, and that the Lord continues to prepare us to be parents!

We love you guys!

To DONATE BY MAIL, please make out the check to ABBA Fund (do not write the family name on the physical check, which will invalidate the charitable aspect of your gift … instead either print out this page to send with it or include a separate note to request that we preference your gift toward the family profiled on this page) — then mail your check and preference request to:  

ABBA Fund, PO BOX 868049, Plano, TX 75086-8049

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 $6.5 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 1,012 orphans become sons and daughters in 912 Christian families since 2004 (as of early 2015) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
