Martin Family Adoption

Leah & Loren Martin Family Adoption

Adoption has been on my heart since I was a young teenager. I always expected that I would adopt a child someday. Adoption grew even closer to my heart when my parents began the adoption process three years ago, but the process ended in tragedy as my little sister died in my mother’s arms in Bulgaria just before they were to bring her home to us. My parents started the adoption process again shortly after her death and that is when Loren and I started serious praying about when we would start our adoption.

We felt God’s direction to adopt and could not be more happy and nervous (financially) to follow God’s prompting, knowing he will provide for what he has commanded us to do as Matthew 18:5 says “And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me”. There are so many bible verses that are clear about our command to care for the orphans! We are so excited and completely humbled to be starting the adoption process, we know we have a long road ahead, but the Lord will be with us every step of the way and we take comfort in that promise!

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.

    We are so grateful for the blessing of adoption. We are standing with and supporting my brother, Loren, and his wife, Leah, in any way that we can. They have stepped out in faith to pursue adoption, fully trusting that God will supply their needs. We are grateful for those who are willing to step out in faith, welcoming a child into their home.
