Daniel Family Adoption

For those who know our family and story, you know that we are no strangers to adoption and God’s call for us to care for “the fatherless” (the orphan). During our journey we’ve been blessed to graft five young children into our family of four, transforming them from orphans into sons & daughters — a beautiful picture of what God has done for each of us through Jesus Christ … adopting us into His family so that we can call Him, “Abba, Father.”

Well God has stirred our hearts again, we were matched in April and are adopting another beautiful child from China … Rose, a special needs toddler who we know will fit right into our hearts and home. Daniel Family - Rose2

 

The timeline of this journey has been a bit quicker than we originally expected, and we could be traveling early in the new year. As we continue to move forward, we are trusting that the Lord will provide the what we need to finalize the adoption. We are in a position that we need to ask you, our friends and family and faith community, to become a part of this adoption journey with our family as we trust in God to provide all we need to care for our precious Rose.

Our need was about $10,000 to complete the adoption — and God has blessed us with a $5,000 matching opportunity through the generosity of a faithful partner in the Christian adoption community. 

Would you partner with us to reach a $5,000 goal by the end of the year … a gift of any size is appreciated — and doing so will bless us with the $10,000 we need to complete the adoption and bring Rose home. 

By donating here on our Family Adoption Fund page with ABBA Fund:

  • Every dollar you give will become $2 as it is matched as part of the challenge grant we have in place
  • Your gift is 100% tax deductible because you are helping fulfill their mission to reduce the financial burden of adoption for Christian families
  • Most importantly, your gift is being preferenced toward our family … and you are personally being woven into the tapestry of our family story

 

Even if you can’t give financially, please give prayerfully by joining us in prayer for Rose’s health and safety, and that God be glorified in every aspect of this adoption and that His guiding hand be undeniable throughout this process.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for every word of encouragement, every prayer and every financial contribution. We are so thankful for all of our friends and family that have surrounded us with love and encouragement during this emotional and life-changing chapter in our lives as we continue to respond to God’s call on or lives to care for His most precious children.

**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.

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.
