Wellborn Family Adoption

Raising children has been on our hearts and minds since before we were married six years ago, and adoption has always been a desire we’ve shared. We have a passion for more vulnerable and disadvantaged children and we believe that bringing children into our family who do not have parents to care for them is part of God’s purpose for our lives.

We recently chose to adopt from Haiti. Haiti has a substantial number of orphans with immediate needs, many of whom may not be readily adopted due to their age or other circumstances. Another reason we chose to adopt internationally is that we have always shared a strong interest in different cultures. We have learned a lot about Haiti and look forward to spending six weeks there to finalize the adoption. We see this as a way to experience our children’s native environment and culture, learn about their background, and begin bonding with them.

Our desire is to adopt two siblings because we believe it is important to preserve the bond between them. We think the sibling bond will be a positive factor in helping our children adjust to being adopted, adapt to a new culture, and be part of a transracial family. We are attuned to the racial issues in our society, and we intend to be proactive in dealing with this unique aspect of our family. We are also making it a priority to keep our children connected with their native culture and heritage.

We are eager to see how God joins us with our children as a family, and are committed to providing a loving and stable home for them. We are thankful for the resources and circumstances that will make this possible.

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 $5.7 million in grants and interest-free loans to help 979 orphans become sons and daughters in 854 Christian families since 2004 (as of early 2015) — with more adoptions being assisted every month.
