Welch Family Adoption

Around the time we started dating, one of the things we found that we both had in common was the desire to adopt one day. We both love how lovingly the adoption shows the love of God, and is a beautiful picture of the gospel. Ephesians 1:5-6 says, “In love, He predestined us for adoption as sons through Jesus Christ according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace with which he has blessed us in the Beloved”. It is amazing knowing that God has adopted us into His kingdom, and that we get to share the throne with Christ.

We had originally planned to adopt later on in life, with the thought that we would have both biological and adopted children; however, we soon learned God has a different plan for us. We know that the heart of man plans his way but the Lord establishes his steps. We know, that after around 3 years of infertility, many prayers for the next steps to take, and a lot of research, God has called us to start this amazing journey of adoption. We are so excited that God has called us to adopt sooner than we originally planned.
We are pursuing a domestic infant adoption through Bethany Christian Services. Our orientation, classes, education, and home studies have been completed and approved, and we are now officially a waiting family. During this waiting process, we are continuing to apply for grants and work on fundraisers. We are also continuing to do education to learn and grow to be the best parents we can be.

Adoption is pretty expensive, so we were so grateful when we found out about some of the amazing opportunities that the ABBA Fund can provide for us with financial help. We look forward to learning more about the ABBA Fund, and how it helps many couples’ dreams come true in adoption. We are thankful for the support of organizations, such as the ABBA Fund, as well as of our family and friends during this exciting time. We cannot wait to be a mommy and daddy.

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

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.
