Roth Family Adoption

In early 2013, we accepted God’s call for us to adopt – specifically, we were led to adopt a boy from Africa. In July 2013, we met Shadrack (then age 3), who lives in the Democratic Republic of Congo. All we knew at the time was that we were drawn to him and his smile. A few days later, we found out he had a sister, Micheline (then age 4). Suddenly we had added two children to our existing family of two children (ages 2 and 4)! We began the Congolese court process in earnest, and were making good progress when the Congo announced that they would temporarily suspend the issuance of exit letters (Congolese law requires that even though a child might be adopted by someone from another county, they still need permission from the Congo in order to leave the country). Undeterred, we continued the process and in January, 2014, we were granted Act of Adoption for Shadrack and Micheline. In May we were fortunate to go over to the Congo and visit our kids – it was an amazing experience, but nearly impossible to leave them. Now we are in October, 2014 and still the Congolese government will not let the kids leave. The waiting is horrible, but we remain steadfast that these are our children and that, while hard to see sometimes, God is in control. We will bring our kids home. We are so thankful to the ABBA fund for taking up our cause!

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.
