Wallace Family Adoption

This is our daughter, Glory, who legally became our child on October 10, 2013, over a year ago — but we are unable to bring her home from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) yet, although we are now responsible for her ongoing care. The DRC suspended issuing exit letters in September 2013 (a month before we completed the legal steps for adoption). — without this document, the children are not allowed to leave the country.CONGO -Wallace Glory

We’ve watched her first tooth, her first steps, and her first wave all through a computer screen. Our hearts long for the day when they can take her into their arms, hold her, and not let go. The waiting is not only emotionally strenuous but difficult financially as well. Funding to keep her in good foster care is expensive and could become unsustainable. In addition to the overall adoption costs, we are now paying $500 a month in foster care costs and $150 a quarter in medical visits to help maintain her health.

God has knitted her to our hearts and grafted her into our family — Glory is our daughter, and we are committed to standing with her and uniting her with our family. We are humbly asking that if God stirs your heart with our story, that yCONGO -Wallace Glory2ou prayerfully consider helping us with the financial burden of Glory’s ongoing care and continued adoption costs. We continue to be the best stewards possible of our resources, and sell jewelry and other efforts to raise money for our adoption … but we need help.

Ours is only 1 of about 350 adoptions remain stalled – 53 of them considered “medically fragile” and tragically, 11 children have died during the suspension from medical issues that could have been better treated in the U.S. The war-ravaged Democratic Republic of Congo is politically unstable with poor living conditions, over-crowding, and disease that runs freely because of a lack of sanitation. The longer these children remain in limbo, the more health risks they face and the more expenses these adoptive families must pay. Like us, our friends are financially tapped, emotionally drained and feeling abandoned. We have humbled themselves to ask for help.

Wallace Skype with GloryThis is Glory, our sweet girl and her wonderful foster family, who we got to Skype with on Nov. 19! This is her blowing us a kiss 😉 It’s so hard to say goodbye. Each month we want to reach through the screen and grab her…

Our ongoing care costs for Glory come out to about $16.50 a day … $116 a week. Just helping with the cost of a day or two, or a week, would be a huge blessing.

Thank you for anything you feel led to give — and more importantly, thank you for your ongoing prayers and encouragement.

– William and Lindsy Wallace

**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 loving, nurturing homes through assistance to 827 Christian families since 2004 (as of fall 2014) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
