M&J Johnson Family Adoption

We have discussed the merit and concept of adoption well before we were married. We knew it was something that we would pursue one day, but we just did not know when.

Before our daughter was born we discussed the possibility of adopting our first child, and then later trying for a biological child. When we found out that Jess has endometriosis, we were told that if we planned on having biological children “now was the time to try”. After months of trying to conceive, we finally got pregnant with our sweet and spunky little girl.

After years of tabling the idea, a sense of urgency came upon us and we started to the adoption process… That was over 2 years ago! The adoption journey has been long and hard, but we will finally be meeting our baby soon. It has been a LONG time coming.

We cannot wait to explain to our child that we chose to bring them into our family. We are making an explicit decision to sacrifice time, effort, and resources for the opportunity to take care of him. This will be an excellent opportunity to explain that this is is exactly what God did for us (on a much grander scale) in sending His son Jesus to be the ultimate sacrifice for our sin.

Now if we are children, then we are heirs – heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. Romans 8:17

I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. John 14:18-19

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

**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.

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.
