Swenson Family Fund

“The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made,” Psalm 145:9.

Dear Family and Friends, we are so excited to be at this point in our adoption journey. It has been a ten-year road, but we are now very close to meeting the child(ren) God has set apart for us! We would love your prayers as we continue to look to Christ in every new step.

Our story has been an adventure since the first time we met in Afghanistan in 2004. We both have a heart to serve the hurting as an expression of our faith. This has fueled and directed our life’s travel and work (over 70 countries for Matt and 40 for Suzie) in missions and humanitarian aid around the world. We are blessed to serve with a wonderful Christian organization committed to caring for people in crisis.

Through our 10+ years of marriage we have longed for family, and have pursued many fertility treatments in multiple countries—all with the same result—unexplained infertility. Though the journey to start a family has been long and challenging, the Lord is always gracious, kind and good—even in the trial. God has brought much healing, perspective, and hope over the years and we trust His sovereign plan. We LOVE adoption and the beautiful way it portrays God’s heart for His children. We discussed the possibility of adoption even while we were dating, and the prospect of it has always been exciting to both of us. Our desire to adopt is rooted in the belief that adoption is God’s first and best choice for us, and that our child(ren) will be a part of a plan greater than we could have anticipated.

We thank you for walking with us these many years, your prayers, encouragement and support have sustained us. This journey that is most often private for couples, has in many ways been a public one for us, shared with you. You have helped us carry a burden and now we hope you will soon share our joy!

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.
