Two Children for Team Challis!

Henry Challis
Henry Challis Baltimore, Maryland

Hello! We’re the Challis Family – Henry, Tabitha, and our amazing 10-year-old son/stepson, Z. Henry was adopted and Tabitha always had a heart for orphan ministry. So we’ve always talked about having a large family through adoption.


We’re a family that loves playing games, traveling to new places and playing outside. Henry and Tabitha both have experience working with kids and we’re looking to adopt a child with special needs.


We were pursuing the adoption of a teen we had hosted over the summer, but then found out that a different family accepted the referral. 


We’ve been approved to adopt “Ian” – this adorable kiddo is a toddler from Eastern Europe and has Down Syndrome and a really cool double thumb. We’ve also been approved to adopt “Vinnie” –  this sweet 10-year-old boy is also from Eastern Europe and has expressive language disorder and delayed neuropsychological development.

 

 


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 “Challis 08864”, 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.

  • In following IRS guidelines, your donation is to Lifesong for Orphans. This organization retains full discretion over its use, but intends to honor the donor’s suggested use.
  • Lifesong is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization. Individual donations of $50 or more and yearly donations totaling $250 or more will receive a tax-deductible receipt. Receipts for donations under $50 will gladly be sent upon request.
