Walters Family Adoption

As early as date number three, we can remember talking about how God had laid adoption on each of our hearts when we were in late middle school/high school. We knew before we were even married that it would be a matter of when to adopt, rather than if we would adopt. Fast forward four years, more life experiences, tons of prayers, and many discussions later, and we find ourselves hearing God saying that the when is now!

Our deepest desire for adoption most definitely stems from the reality that we have been adopted as a son and daughter of the King. Just as we have been chosen and infinitely loved, we desire to show this little one that they have been chosen and will be loved indefinitely. This is the heart beat of our pursuit of adoption.

God has given us a love for other cultures and ethnicities, and we believe that this bent toward diversity is another pillar of our adoption story. We are pursuing a cross-cultural US adoption and could not be more excited for our family to be a reflection of God’s creative nature and of His love for all people.

As simple as it may sound, we love kids. Whether they are future biological children, adopted, or our pseudo nieces and nephews from within our community, we just love kids. Everything from lunch dates, vacations, countless throws in the air, school performances, questions and comments that make us want to burst out laughing, the ups and downs of discipline, story time, or getting to see them discover new things, we cannot stay away from time with kids. Where adoption is a big commitment and is unique and special in so many ways, we are most excited about the little, every day moments with children we will get to call our own. We can’t wait to adopt because we get excited about the opportunity of making disciples within our family.

We are excited to share our adoption story with you and would be honored for you to play a part in it as well. Please add us to your prayer list and pass on our requests to your communities of prayer. Our desire for adoption is only a small piece of the whole puzzle. Here are some other pieces you can pray for:
1.) Pray that we would continually rest in His promises as we walk through this process.
2.) Pray that God would meet every need in abundance. The needs (logistically, financially, and emotionally) can seem overwhelming, but we believe He is a God who provides!
3.) Pray for our future child’s birth parents. Pray that they would know that they are loved and cherished.

Please prayerfully consider helping us make this dream a reality through a tax-deductible donation. These gifts, along with your prayers, are greatly appreciated!

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.
