Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.
Adoption was God's plan even before the creation of the world. It is an incredible picture of the Gospel, in which God chose to bring us into His family and call us his own.
But the largest barrier to adoption is usually the financial one. It can cost tens of thousands of dollars in fees, medical expenses, and overhead costs. To help make adoption a more accessible option for families, Northridge Church has established a fund through the non-profit organization ABBA Fund to provide grants and interest-free loans to qualifying families. ABBA Fund can also help you set up a family adoption fund to invite your friends and family members to contribute to your adoption process. You can apply for all of that through a single application (and you can read more here about the family adoption fund and the interest-free loans).
On the application under the "Church Information" section, please mark "Yes" to the question "Does your church have an adoption assistance program with ABBA Fund?" and write "Northridge Adoption Fund" as the name of that fund.
If you have questions about adoption, would like resources about adoption, or want to connect with other adoption-minded families, fill out THIS FORM and someone will follow-up with you soon.
If you would like to donate to the fund to support adoptive families from Northridge, you can do that with a check made payable to ABBA Fund by including a memo or notation indicating Northridge Church and sending to: ABBA Fund, PO Box 868049, Plano, TX 75086. Donations can also be made online. Donors will choose the Church Loan Fund in the “Choose Your Designation” area of the form and then they must specify Northridge Church in the “notes” box in order for us to code correctly for you.
