Ammon Adoption

Alexis Ammon
Alexis Ammon Louisville, Kentucky

Welcome to our adoption fundraising page! Lexi and I have been married since August 2015 and have both had a strong desire to adopt for many years. Prior to meeting each other, both of us had separate experiences working in international orphanages and this is when the Lord burdened both of our hearts for orphans. As Lexi and I began considering engagement, we discussed adoption together and were relieved to find out that God had placed this same desire on both of our hearts. 

 

As we began our family, we knew that we would pursue adoption one day, we just didn’t know when. We believe that the Lord is leading us to adopt now and are extremely excited to begin this process. We are motivated to adopt because we ourselves have been adopted into the family of God as son and daughter through Christ’s finished work on the cross. Although this journey will bring many ups and downs, we trust that God will sustain us and provide our every need. Our plan is to adopt a child or sibling group from the country of Hungary. We are eager to make an orphan an Ammon and are grateful for any amount of financial support you can offer. 

 

International adoption does require substantial fees in order to complete the process. The adoption will cost us around $40,000+, so we are hoping to raise $30,000 to help offset the cost. So, thank you for prayerfully considering partnering with us financially. We are so grateful to know that we are not alone in this process and have dear family and friends supporting us through this journey!

 

Lastly, we are extremely grateful to share that we have been gifted a $6,000 matching grant from Immanuel Baptist Church Adoption Fund, administered by Lifesong for Orphans! We are so thankful for the generosity of our church! Would you consider helping us to reach $6,000 so that we can receive another $6,000 from IBC? 

 


STRIPE charges an online processing fee (2.2% +.30 USD per transaction). Your donations will be decreased by this amount. You may also send a check payable to “Lifesong for Orphans”.

Hey all, 

We have officially been approved by our government for international adoption from Hungary! This is very exciting news! We completed our home study in December and are now completing the Dossier. At this point in the process, Ethan and I are sending in our dossier to the agency and then we will begin waiting. We are so thankful to everyone for their continued support! Thank you for your prayers and support! We have felt so cared for and are so thankful for each of you! We will continue to write updates here as we receive them! 

In Christ, 

The Ammons
