Riegler Family Adoption

We began our adoption journey nearly two years ago. We knew God was breaking our hearts for the vulnerable orphaned children throughout the world but specifically in the Congo. We were matched with our son, Chiza, in the spring of 2013 and he now is being looked after by his sweet foster mama.

In September 2013, the DRC placed a suspension on exit letters for all adoptions. We are still waiting for the ban to lift so we can bring our sweet boy home. I (Ashley) was able to spend time with him this summer as I made a quick trip to connect with our son and begin a relationship with him. The emotions and pain I felt as I said goodbye to him were unimaginable. We are praying that he will be able to join our family soon!

We have been so encouraged by the way the Abba Fund has reached out to us Congo families and are allowing us to get financial help through generous donors . These funds will be able to help us with ongoing medical expenses, foster care, and emergency trips if that need would arise.

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.
