Townsend Family Adoption

We are so excited to be adopting! Romans 8-16-17 says, “…But you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, ‘ABBA! Father!’ The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs — heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ”.

We are able to love because God has loved us and we desire to shower that love on the child God has chosen for us through adoption. We knew, after we felt God nudging our hearts one day with the thought of adoption, that we needed to seriously consider it. Over time, after praying and seeking God, adoption became the very real desire of our hearts and we couldn’t be more happy about it! We are adopting a child from South Korea, he or she will be under the age of 2.

While we certainly can “add a little more water to the soup” for all the daily necessities required in adding a family member, we cannot cover the cost of the adoption itself on our own. Our adoption from top to bottom is estimated to cost between $35,000 – $54,000. We know God has called us to this. He is faithful, and we know that these costs will be met one way or another! Thank you for your consideration in helping us both prayerfully and financially!

We can’t wait to meet our child, we can’t wait for him to meet his brothers, we can’t wait to tell him about the sovereignty of God in his life.

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.
