OVERFLOWING GENEROSITY … Meet the Gros Family

Gros family1After applying to be part of ABBA Fund’s Christian Family Adoption Grant Fund in November, Rob and Michelle Gros used their online Family Adoption Fund profile with ABBA Fund as an extension of the other traditional adoption fundraisers.

They raised $1,200 from a t-shirt fundraiser, $3,755 from selling special Christmas advent kits, $950 from pendant jewelry sales, $545 from a haircut fundraiser and additional funds from a variety of home party events and gifts from friends.

By Christmas 2013, the Gros family was celebrating $10,000 of blessings toward their domestic adoption journey – allowing them to move forward with their home study and initial agency fees. This was a great start toward their $35,000 goal, and the family had plans for more fundraisers in the coming year – but then, the call came. Rob and Michelle were asked to pray about adopting a baby boy who after being born was placed in the NICU from drug exposure he experienced prior to delivery … and they had 48 HOURS to get to him. An anticipated two-year timeline suddenly became a two-day timeline.

(Their adoption story is one that includes the brave love that was shown by a birth mother who despite life’s challenges chose life for her child and made the courageous decision to place her child with a loving, nurturing family — to learn more about honoring the brave, courageous choices that birth moms make and to hear some of their inspiring testimonies, please visit our ministry friends at BraveLove.)

The Count to 1,000 Families Assisted: Celebrating 10 Years of Providing Adoption Assistance for Christian Families

No strangers to the orphan crisis, Joel and Claire Davis served some of the world’s neediest street orphans both in Haiti and Peru. They demonstrated compassion to the abandoned children by playing soccer, teaching them Bible stories, and swimming in rivers with them. Quality time spent together communicated to the orphans they were loved, seen by God, not forgotten, and heirs to an eternal kingdom.

Joel and Claire’s adoption journey took them into two challenging African countries for adoption — Uganda and the Congo. Of the 368 families whose adoptions were halted in September 2013 because of the DRC’s suspension of exit letters for adopted children, the Davis family was one of the fortunate 15 American families whose adoptions were allowed to proceed in May/June 2014.
