Todd Family Adoption

From a Plan to a Journey…

Our adoption journey started several years ago with wanting to grow our family. We thought the plan would be to have biological children first; however, that was not what God had in mind. There were many doors closed to us but we knew God was calling us to be parents. Through much prayer, we decided to listen to God’s call and pursue adoption. Adoption is not our 2nd choice but simply a continuation of our journey. We had to struggle and grow in Christ before it was time to start the process. There was heartache but we had to be brought to a place where God knew we would finally be ready.

For the first time in years, there is perfect peace that this is where God wants us to be. A great reminder we have in 2 Corinthians 12:9 says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” We are reminded daily that God is in control and he has our best interests at heart. It’s a promise that when we are weak, God is right there giving us strength to carry on. This journey is beyond exciting and yet can be overwhelming, but we are grateful to be serving a God, who never misses a beat.

Thank you for visiting our page and hearing a snippet about our life and journey. Please be praying with us as we finish up our home study and then enter the waiting family pool. Please be praying for the expecting birthparent that will be making an adoption plan for their child that will potentially be matched with us. Please also consider joining us in helping to bring a baby home. Your generous donations will be greatly appreciated. God bless!


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

**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.

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.

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 adoption assistance from ABBA Fund.

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 $6.5 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 1,012 orphans become sons and daughters in 912 Christian families since 2004 (as of early 2015) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
