Dyba Family Adoption

Dear Family and Friends,

We have been blessed beyond words to adopt our first son, Silas, and we are so excited to announce that we will be growing our family again through the miracle of adoption.

Many of you played an integral part in our first adoption, and we are so grateful for the support that came through many different facets: prayer, words of encouragement and financial support. Again, one of the most difficult and challenging parts of adoption is the financial hurdle to overcome.

When we were placed with our son, we had just branched out to a newer and larger agency that works with birth mothers all over the country. God graciously provided for the unexpected surprise of being placed with Silas through our original agency.
Most of which, was through the faithful giving you all contributed, to make the first matching grant possible.

It’s humbling to take this on a second time, when we felt such an abundant outpour with Silas. However, this $5,000 matching grant is readily available for couples at our church that are pursuing adoption and we feel that God has enabled this grant as a blessing to meet our needs.

With that being said, we are still in need of the travelling and legal fees, as well as any medical or birth mother costs that may accompany our match. We don’t know what the exact need is, but legal fees alone could be anywhere from $6,000-$8,000. We also have recently updated our profile preferences to extend $3,000 to a potential birth mother match that may be in need.

We know that many of you have been faithfully praying alongside us in bringing Silas home and even now, the excitement you’ve shown as we go through this process again.

There are two ways you can help us:
1. Prayer— Please pray for our adoption and that this process would ultimately glorify God and fulfill His purposes. We are just a small tool in His grand plan and no area of this process would be possible without Him. We are emotionally and financially destitute without Him, therefore as painful as this process is, it requires us to be dependent on Him all the more. Please pray for perseverance to press on to the end goal, that He would meet us in every need and we would continue trust Him in His timing for growing our family.

2. Financial Support—Please prayerfully consider helping us in fund raising the remainder amount to adopt our baby. Any amount will help us reach our goal and would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for prayerfully considering this opportunity to come alongside our family by making a contribution to the ABBA Fund / Grace Church of DuPage Matching Grant Fund.

In Christ,
Matt and Danielle

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.
