Crisp Family Adoption

After talking and praying for years about the possibility of adopting, Jay and I decided early in 2014 to answer the call to adopt a child with medical needs. Little did we know that we would soon be walking though a cancer diagnosis and treatment with our oldest son. Our adoption plans were put on hold just three months after we began our home study in the fall of 2014, but our story does not end there. The Lord graciously blessed our family so much through our son’s treatment that we felt called to not only continue our adoption once our son was declared cancer-free, but adopt a child who had more involved medical needs.

Through a series of events last spring and summer that we can only call divinely arranged, Jay and I found out about a little boy in Hong Kong who has waited too long for a family to call his own. We began praying for this boy and rejoiced when he was matched with a family. When the match did not work out for that family we prayed and felt called to step forward to give this little guy a forever family.

Jay and I are hoping to receive official match approval from Hong Kong very soon and travel before Thanksgiving to bring our child home. We are preparing our hearts and home for our new addition and have just been amazed to see the Lord provide the resources our child will need. It is a great privilege to have the opportunity to fund raise through ABBA Fund in order to save for upcoming medical and therapy expenses we anticipate. You can contribute a tax-deductible donation to our adoption by visiting the link below.

We thank you so much for visiting our donation page and reading about the unbelievable journey our family has taken during this process. We are so thankful for the prayers and encouragement offered for our family and our adopted child. Blessings to you and thank you for supporting our adoption.

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.
