Tekampe Family Adoption

A couple of years ago, we found out that a pregnancy would not be possible for me. My doctor suggested I try a fertility treatment. I refused any treatment to force my body to do something it didn’t achieve naturally. Since then, we have contemplated the idea of adopting. Through reading about adoption options, we learned that we needed to be married at least 5 year to adopt. Last year, my younger brother had a baby. We decided it was time for us to start our adoption journey. We planned a trip to south America to have the time to pray on our decision (we flew for free since we had travel vouchers earned on a previous trip).

While in South America, I received a message from the children’s mother (a cousin of mine) asking me to adopt her children. We felt so happy that this offer had come to us (Sometimes our human quality does not let us understand God’s ways). We changed our trip and flew to meet the children. We fell instantly in love with them.

After we arrived back in the United States we started to research how to proceed with the adoption. We contacted Open Door Adoption Agency. Open Door had several recommendations on how we may be able to fund the adoptions. One of their suggestions was for us to look into ABBA Fund. We have been very busy with the adoption and ABBA Fund personnel have always been gracious with reaching out to us. My husband, John, has read a couple of the books recommended by the Fund. He is currently reading Orphanology . We discuss the books’ relating adoption and the Gospel This book has been a literal Godsend.

Please pray about supporting our adoption.

**AN IMPORTANT CLARIFICATION FROM ABBA FUND ABOUT YOUR DONATION**

ABBA Fund administers this fund and maintains full control and administration of all donated funds.

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.
