Kraine Family Adoption

God first placed adoption on my heart about 22 years ago. I just knew that someday I would get married and my husband and I would raise children together – both natural and adopted. As the years have passed, God has not brought me a husband (yet!) but He reassured me that adoption was still in my future. One day in 2010, I felt led to adopt even though I was single. God reminded me that His ways are not mine and that His grace would be sufficient for me no matter what the circumstance. So, I began fostering Shaniayah in 2011 and adopted her in 2013! We have been an energetic, happy, little family ever since.

In April 2016, I was asking God when I should adopt again and sensed the answer was, “Now!” I began working with Children’s Hope International to adopt a little girl from China. This June, I will be traveling to China to adopt a beautiful, tiny, 5 year old girl from the Chongqing province. Her name will be Emily Joy Marie Kraine. Shaniayah and I are both very excited to be Emily’s forever family – Shaniayah’s exact words are, “I’m going to have a Chinese sister!!!!!” I am confident that with God’s grace, her enthusiasm will continue as she realizes she is no longer an only child.

As travel to China nears, please pray for safe travel to and from China, for Shaniayah as she waits in North Carolina for her sister and for Emily in this huge life transition into our family. If you would like to help financially, the ABBA Fund is an amazing organization that will send your tax-deductible donations directly to Children’s Hope International to help with our adoption expenses.

Thank you all for being a part of our wonderful village!


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.
