Farr Family Adoption

Alisha and I started talking about adoption when we were first engaged. We knew we wanted to adopt, and Lord willing, have biological children as well. The more we read scripture the more we feel called to adoption. We see the picture of adoption many different times through scripture.

“All who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God. For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” – Romans 8:15

“He [God our Father] predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will.” – Ephesians 1:5

We are so excited to be on this adoption journey. We would love for you to join us in prayer. Please pray for us and our future child and that the Lord would begin interweaving our hearts with the heart of our future child’s birthmother. We have chosen an open adoption, which means we will have a lifelong relationship with the birthmother. We can’t wait to foster a loving relationship with her.

If you feel led, we would be honored if you would prayerfully consider a financial donation towards our adoption expenses.

– Johnny and Alisha

**AN IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION FROM ABBA FUND ABOUT YOUR DONATION**
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.

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 support from ABBA Fund — including the family listed above in their online Family Adoption Fund profile.

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.

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 $5.4 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 972 orphans become sons and daughters in 780 Christian families since 2004 (as of fall 2014) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
