Frey Family Fund

Our family has always had a place in our hearts for adoption, but it did not become a serious consideration until after the birth of our second child. Pregnancy with both boys gave us some trouble with many weeks of hospital stays and early labor, of which the doctors worked to hold off the birth for many weeks. Both of our boys were born five weeks early and despite the risks, God blessed us with healthy babies. Watching them grow and learn was filled with great joys and challenges and was more amazing than we ever imagined.

Again we felt led to continue to grow our family and when the time came for that to happen, with so many uncertainties resulting from our previous pregnancies, all we could do was give it to the Lord and follow his calling. We spent many months seeking the Lord and in that time He spoke to us through scripture and through the nudging of His spirit within us. He showed us His heart for adoption and that the very reason God sent His Son was to redeem us, that we may be adopted children of God. We both felt that He was pointing us to adoption to grow our family, more specifically through a domestic infant adoption. Pursuing this was a leap of faith for us and so we waited and asked for His confirmation, which He so graciously provided.

So we jumped into it and found out that adoption is quite a process. Each phase seems more overwhelming than the last, yet God has so faithfully provided. Our home study has been completed and we are working with a few adoption agencies, waiting to be matched with the birthmother of our child. Currently we are working to gather the necessary funds to cover the costs of adoption, which again seems overwhelming, but we are confident in the Lord and His ability to provide. The support we have had from our family, friends, and even strangers has been amazing. We are so thankful for the kind hearts of people and organizations such as ABBA that help families like us to reach our adoption goals and build loving, supportive families.

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

**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.

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.
