Wilkins Family Adoption

Our family’s adoption journey began when we discovered orphan hosting through New Horizons for Children. Prior to this point, adoption was not something we had considered. Hosting was appealing to us because we felt we could make a difference in a child’s life by showing them what it is like to live in a healthy, loving family.

When our host child came to us in December of 2013, we felt a love for him we didn’t expect. To get to know this child who had been let down in every way by the people who were supposed to love him the most…it was overwhelming. We got to know him, not only his sweet and loving disposition, but also his alarming ignorance and immaturity, and felt in our hearts his need for the love of a family, and that we had the capacity to love him as our own. We realize that it will take dedication, hard work, and unconditional love, but we are committed to giving this child what he deserves; a loving family who will take care of his every need no matter what.

The ABBA fund website will hopefully encourage people to make generous contributions to alleviate the financial burden of adopting and so transform this orphan into a son.

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.
