Roan Brown Family Adoption

We are Roan and; Riquetta Brown and we have a strong heart for children, especially those whom are not being loved on. It’s been our dream to help give adopt a child or children. At this time we feel called by God to go forward.
We are adopting Kymanda Stewart (our soon to be daughter), female, age 9 is a Jamaican citizen and the niece of Roan Brown, “soon to be father.” Her mother birthed her at an early age, causing her to drop out of high school and became a stay at home mother. However, the father was able to support her and Kymanda. Unfortunately, in 2010, Kymanda’s father passed away after battling stomach cancer for 9 months. As a result, Kymanda was sent away to live with her grandparents because her mother was unable to support her financially because her level of education was not sufficient for a decent enough job. Thus, while Kymanda was living with the grandparents, the mother lived and worked at a bar in order to assist with Kymanda’s care financially. Unfortunately, not much longer, the mother became pregnant with a second child whose father is not dead but absent. Because of this second pregnancy, the mother lost her job at the bar and had to move in with her parents, the same grandparents that Kymanda was living with. It was at this point, approximately 5 years ago, we assumed financial responsibility for Kymanda as the grandparents was not able to. About 3 years ago, Kymanda’s mother moved out and is living with her boyfriend, second child and is now pregnant with a 3rd child. Neither she nor her boyfriend has a steady job so we continue to support Kymanda.

In 2015, we learned that Kymanda has been living in an abusive and hostile environment where she observed the physical beatings of her grandmother and personally subjected to abuse on many occasions. With us being in America and she being in Jamaica, our hands are tied in how much love and care we can give her from a distance. It was at this time that we answered God’s calling to adopt Kymanda as our daughter. In order to keep Kymanda safe we fell led to make the tough decision of sending her to live with her mother while we process the adoption. The living situation is not in the best interest of the child because Kymanda is approaching puberty and has to share a one-room space with her mother, sister and her mother’s boyfriend. In addition, Kymanda is often left alone with the boyfriend in her mother absence; this is NOT safe for a little girl whom is approaching puberty.

We’re so excited to give her an opportunity to grow up in our home where she will learn about the love of and be introduced to the person of Christ while receiving the love and nurturing that she needs to thrive. We are taking God’s Word to heart and caring for this orphan child. (James 1:27). Please join hands and hearts with us!!

**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.
