Hayes Family Adoption

To be honest, articulating how God has led us to adopt is somewhat difficult. It is a similar answer to the questions of how did God lead us to start dating, get married, or have our son, Sam. Adopting is just something that God has firmly placed in our hearts, made abundantly clear was the path the He was laying before us, and bolstered for many, many years. Please do not interpret that as us being flippant or trivial about this decision or process. We completely realize the magnitude of this decision. But, throughout our relationship, God has made sure that the big decisions—when to get married, where to live, when to move, when to start a family, etc.—have been on His timing, not ours.

To be honest, with two engineers, He has to beat us over the head with the important things, and His leading us to adopt has been no exception. He has placed us in two church families in which adoption is highly esteemed and supported. We have been blessed to walk with close friends as they have adopted and fostered. Through that, God has continually affirmed that adoption was in our future, and we are confident that the future is now. He has spoken clearly and succinctly to us. He has made it clear that we are to pursue a minority placement, which were not anticipating originally, but are extremely excited about. We sincerely thank you for considering being a part of our journey in fulfilling what God has very clearly led us to do.

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.
