Larch Family Adoption

Bonswa! Good afternoon! We are the Larch Family. We are Nathaniel and Johanna Larch and our daughters, Sylvie and Darby. We live in Southeast Michigan, near the Canadian border. We both grew up here and love being close to our family. Some of you know we have felt called by God to adopt a child into our own family, specifically from Haiti. What prompted us to want to adopt? In 2013 Johanna heard about a mission trip to Haiti and felt a strong pull to attend. (We almost missed hearing about the trip!) That mission trip was life changing. As a family we had already agreed that we had room for more in our family. After many talks and prayerful consideration, we understood that God was asking us to give a child a family that might not otherwise have one.

The biggest challenge so far has been finding the finances to make this happen. The estimated total cost of an international adoption from Haiti is $30,000. That is certainly money we don’t have. So far we have been able to pay $6,900. Currently we are trying to come up with the funds to ship our dossier (our family’s file of information) to Haiti so we can be matched with a specific child. We are $3000 short of our goal of $4500 needed to ship our dossier. We continually remind ourselves of Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” as we navigate through the ups and downs of the adoption process.

We would like to ask you to pray and consider helping us in one or two ways with our adoption. Please prayerfully consider joining our family through prayer and/or make a financial contribution to help alleviate some of the financial burden of adoption.

We will continue to update our family’s profile with the details of our adoption process and look forward to introducing our newest family member! Please pray this entire process will glorify God and fulfill his purposes.

Sincerely,
Nathaniel, Johanna, Sylvie and Darby

**AN IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION FROM ABBA FUND ABOUT YOUR DONATION**
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.
