Shelton Family Adoption

At a young age, Amanda lost both of her parents. Luckily for her and her brothers, there was a sweet woman who was able to take them in and care for them as her own children. Because of this, we were able to grow up in a loving and caring environment. Adam and Amanda met in 2008 while both were serving in the United States Marine Corps. We fell head over heels for each other and were married and began a family of our own. We knew that adoption would eventually happen in our family because we wanted to give a child the hope and love they deserved. After getting out of the military and moving to Alabama with our two kiddos (Addison and Austen) we finally began to seek Christ. We became very involved in our church and our lives changed. In June of 2016, we were fortunate enough to go on a mission trip to Ghana to an orphanage out there. That is where we met the sweetest little boy, Ema. He melted our hearts from day one. A few months after getting back home from our trip, God revealed to us in the most miraculous way that we were to begin the process of bringing our son home. So here we are, working hard to get our baby boy home where he belongs. We are so thankful for our church and community and the ABBA fund for helping us along this journey. So far it has been trying and long but also very beautiful to watch unfold. We hope you will join us in this as well.


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.
