Renkema Family

Our family had a strong desire to adopt from Ethiopia and began the process over three years ago. During this time we welcomed our daughter, Lena into the world. My husband Steve & I recently traveled and were granted legal custody of our son, Elliot. Steve is in Ethiopia with our son with hopes of returning home once Elliot’s medical is cleared and he receives his visa & passport. Elliot is confident, funny, adventurous and already very attached to his daddy as Steve has been in country with him since the end of November. When we went to court to seek custody in Ethiopia the last question the judge asked us was if we loved him, YES!

We are so grateful for everyone’s generosity and prayerful support during this journey. We are thrilled to welcome Elliot into our family and eager to have our boys home with us soon. Thank you to ABBA fund for your support and platform as this last stretch of our adoption has become the most financially challenging. As we incur last minute travel expenses around both American & Ethiopian Holidays we thank you everyone for your encouragement and generosity in bringing our son into his forever home. One less orphan!

Zephaniah 3:17 “The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.”


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.
