We are Brad and Amy Tankersley. We have been blessed with two wonderful children but have been called by God to grow our family through adoption. We have finished our home studies and we are now waiting on the child God has just for us. We are really excited about what God has in store for our family. The funds that we raise will go towards our adoption expenses that will greatly increase as we get closer to being matched with our child and bringing them home. We have also been awarded a $4000 matching grant from a local organization, Jeeah’s Hope Adoption Fund, that is administered by Lifesong for Orphans. What this means is is that any funds given through our mySTORY page will go directly into our account for our matching grant. Don’t worry if you have already donated to us through fundraisers and such, we will be sending that in also for the matching grant. We appreciate your prayers and support!
The Tankersley Family
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”. In the memo line please write “Tankersley 7749”, to ensure it is credited to our account. Please mail to Lifesong for Orphans, PO Box 40, Gridley, IL 61744.
Lifesong has been blessed with partners who underwrite all U.S. administrative and fundraising costs (TMG Foundation and other partners). That means 100% of your donation will go directly to the adoption.
