Langwell Family Adoption

We feel God has taken many avenues to bring adoption to weigh heavily on our hearts. We have not even received this blessing yet, and God has already filled our hearts with an abundance of love for this precious gift.

Ashley Testimony
Back in September it had been almost two years of trying to get pregnant. We were getting frustrated but never angry. “Fertility issues” is what they called it. We went and saw a specialist for a consult and received options on how to go about next steps on finding out why and what’s next. And then it happened. God placed adoption on my heart. It was not something I ever thought about because we were “trying” but when it hit me, it hit my heart hard. I started noticing the people in my life, books I was gifted and reading, and just things happening, that weren’t really coincidences, that were all pointing us to adoption. I started praying, watching, listening, reading, and talking about those things. It weighed heavier on my heart daily. Stetson and I started talking about it more and more. We started talking with others and then it started weighing on Stetson’s heart. Then we prayed. A LOT.

Stetson Testimony
When Ashley first brought the option to adopt a child to me, I could tell it weighed heavy on her heart and that she truly felt that it was God’s plan for us. At first, I had some reservations, not that I was opposed to it, I just never really thought of adoption as an option. So, I prayed and prayed and then prayed some more. I asked God to guide me through this decision and reveal to me what is truly in my heart. Should we keep trying to get pregnant? Should we just be happy with the child we have? Should we wait and think about adoption for another year or so? These questions and a million other questions flooded my mind, day and night. I remember being outside in the backyard playing with my daughter and feeling an overwhelming peace and in that moment, I knew that adoption was the path we were meant to be on all along. I felt an abundance of assurance in the decision I desperately prayed for. While I am still nervous sometime about what the future brings, I am sure that God will give us the gift of a child and all the love and admiration that comes with it. Now I understand and feel the weight of adoption on my heart and can see God’s plan unfolding right in front of me. God truly is great!

So, coming to the decision to adopt was not just a simple conversation with each other, there were many prayers, tears, and cheers. God spoke, and we listened. We came to the conclusion to adopt through prayer and reflecting on who and what we want to be as a family. And hey guess what?! WE ARE ALL ADOPTED!

Please prayerfully consider being apart of this journey by prayer and/or financial support. This journey could be a rollercoaster and we need our prayer warriors to lift us up in prayer. Also, adoption can be very expensive but we are fully trusting in the Lord and working on many ways to offset the cost. Our adoption should come out to $40,000 but our garage sale, apron sale, and sweet donation have help with a some of this.  If God touches your heart to be part of our story, we humbly ask that you give through our Family Adoption Fund that we’ve set up in partnership with ABBA Fund by using the donation form right here on this page. We humbly thank you for your prayers and support.

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.
