Karschner Family Fund

5 years ago, Ashley and Drew started their adoption process after attending a Lifeline Children’s fundraiser. They were only 26 at the time and pursued a child from Ethiopia.Last year, when Ethiopia shut down their international adoption program, God showed clearly that the Karschner’s could switch to the China Program. Multiple times they felt God opening doors as they continued to pray for their call to bring home a child.

On February 14th, Drew and Ashley said YES to Malachi. Malachi was abandoned in a box when he was several days old. He is considered an orphan in China. But he is not an orphan. He is loved and has been prayed for since before he was born.

“God decided, in advance, to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Christ Jesus. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure”
Ephesians 1:5

Adoption for them has been a long journey of waiting on God. Now in a couple months they will be flying to China to bring home Malachi as a part of thier family. But adoption comes with a cost. This adoption in total will cost them $40,000. In the next couple months they will have to pay around $20,000 to bring home thier son.

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.
