Dearest family and friends, we want to thank you all for your love and support on our journey to grow our family through adoption! Adoption has been on our hearts from early on in our relationship and we have always planned to have adoption be a part of our family’s story. Our intentions were to start our family and look into adoption after having multiple children of our own. We were blessed with a great first pregnancy and welcomed our daughter Presley into our lives with little to no issue. While we intended to have more children of our own we, unfortunately, could not. We lost two sons, Gabriel and Lucas, and one daughter, Collins, all in the second trimester of pregnancy. When pregnant with Collins we prayed that God would give us peace if we were not to have her here on earth with us, and while the answer was difficult, we had peace as He moved us to pursue adoption.
We are encouraged by the tax returns that the state offers for adoption donations. We’re hoping to raise as much as possible knowing that families will receive it back. From our family to yours, thank you. Our adoption agency, Christian Family Care, is a qualifying 501(c)(3) organization that provides adoption services and foster care programs here in Arizona. This may allow adopt fund donations to be counted as charitable giving on your federal taxes.
For those living in Arizona, you can contribute up to $500 (as a single person) or $1000 (couples filing together), and may be able to receive a dollar-for-dollar credit on your Arizona State tax return through the Arizona Foster Tax Credit.
For those living outside of Arizona, you may be able to put your donation towards a tax deduction on your federal taxes as a charitable gift or itemized deduction. You should consult your tax professional about your eligibility for the deductions and credits.
