ABBA Fund’s story starts with a Christian family’s first adoption and their need for financial assistance in order to complete their adoption. God used the generosity of church family and friends to not only provide their financial needs, but to humble them and open up their hearts to His calling. The result was the founding of ABBA Fund in 2004 with a small amount of funds to provide interest-free loans to Christian families who needed help to adopt. Fast-forward to today and ABBA Fund is stewarding more than $2 million in funds for interest-free adoption loans, 80+ church partnerships, dozens of individual families and friends, a network of 500+ Christian adoptive families, and multiple channels of resources and relationships — all focused on providing adoption assistance for Christian families called to adopt.
ABBA Fund’s mission is to assist Christian families committed to caring for orphans in loving, nurturing Christian family environments. We are a diverse community of Christian families helping other Christian families adopt and champion the cause of the orphan at home and around the world.
The heart of ABBA Fund is helping orphans become sons and daughters in loving, nurturing Christian family environments where they will not only experience the love of Jesus Christ, but be introduced to the person of Jesus Christ – and prayerfully one day trust in Him so that they will be adopted into Abba, Father’s family through salvation … thus, the name of our ministry. (Rom 8:14-16; Gal 4:4-6; Eph. 1:4-6)
We believe the best way to accomplish that calling is to help Christian families adopt — and not just adopting in or into the United States, but also helping international Christian families adopt orphans in their own culture and country. And in situations where adoption is not an option, we want to help Christian families provide as close to a loving, nurturing family environment for orphans as possible in culturally appropriate ways. Every child deserves a family.
