Hanf Family Adoption

Sarah and I experienced a difficult time getting pregnant in our first five years of marriage. We suffered two miscarriages each in the first trimester. It was a miracle that we conceived Morgan in the Fall of 2009. Since her birth in 2010, it has been even harder to conceive. Due to scarring in Sarah’s uterus, the probability that we can ever get pregnant again is very slim. Sarah has visited specialists and dietitians including frequent visits to and operations by her OB/GYN doctor. Nothing has proven to be effective.

Because we both feel like we have more love to give and also believe our family is not yet complete, we made the decision to begin the adoption process in the summer of 2014. We had long considered the idea but wanted to be sure we could not have any more biological children. We are both very excited about who God has in store for our family. Although it has not been easy trying to grow our family, we feel at peace now, knowing that we have begun the adoption process which has lifted the stress of trying to become pregnant.

We would like to adopt an infant between the ages of 0-6 months. Our hope would be to have the opportunity to care for a child from their early stages so we can incorporate the values of our faith in Christ, our family traditions, and develop a strong bond with them at an early age. Because of the diverse background of our families and many adopted relatives, we are also open to a child from another race or background.

We ask that you partner with us in prayer for (1) the birthmother and baby’s health and for their family’s emotional support; (2) our adoption social worker, her support staff, and the legal teams that will be involved; (3) our immediate and extended family to prepare for our new arrival; (4) wisdom and discernment as we are matched with birth mothers in the coming months that we accept the baby that God has prepared for us.

Additionally, we ask that you pray about how you may support us financially. Adoption is expensive and our goal is to avoid going into debt as we grow our family. Through the support of family and friends as well as our own resources, we have already covered over 40% of our total adoption cost. We have also applied for adoption grants to help offset more of the total cost.

Thank you for your prayers and support. You play an integral role in bringing home the baby God has prepared for our family. Please continue to follow us for updates throughout our adoption journey.

**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.
