Franks Family Adoption

Terry and I met when we were both hired at the same hospital and were both attending the same college. After dating for eight months, Terry proposed. Fast forward thirteen months later and we were married by the pond at my parent’s house which happens to be the same place he asked me to marry him. We just celebrated nine years being married.

After three years of marriage we had our son, Eli. Two years later we had our daughter, Meila. At two months old, Meila was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder. After her diagnosis and months of prayer and counsel we decided what was best for our family was to not have any more biological children. Because we both felt called to adopt at a young age we knew this decision didn’t mean we wouldn’t have more children we would just have more through ADOPTION. God had been preparing our hearts for years.

We have an active home study but are currently fundraising before going active so that we can be in a healthy place financially when the baby comes and we can continue to provide all that our son and daughter need.

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.
