Our family’s story…

Rich and Rachel Hendrikson Iola, Wisconsin

We have had adoption on our hearts for a little over 10 years and now is the time that we get to pursue this process to complete our family! We are so excited to welcome another son and brother to Autumn-Rayne, Levi and Havalah! There are so many children in the world who need a family, we are thankful that we get to be that family to a child. Our children ask us often when their little brother will be coming home. We don’t know who he is yet but God does; and as we pray for him, we feel like he is already a part of our family.

We know that adoption and orphan care is important to many others too. Our account with Lifesong for Orphans provides an opportunity for others to join us in raising the funds to complete this stage of our adoption. We are very thankful that we have been offered a matching grant of $2500 from Lifesong. Every donation given to our account will get a tax deductible receipt and Lifesong will match that gift up until $2500. We are praying to have $5000 ($2500 + $2500 grant) by the end of October so that we can send our file to India. Once the file is received, we wait to receive our reference and be matched up with our son!


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 “Hendrikson 7155”, 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.
