Ten years ago, Steven Curtis and Mary Beth Chapman, took God's call to "care for the orphans" in James 1:27 as an invitation to experience God in a profound way by being a part of His plan for His precious children. As a result, they adopted three girls from China and were awakened by the desperate need of orphans around the world. This also led them to start Show Hope (formerly Shaohannah's Hope), an organization dedicated to families looking to adopt by helping them overcome financial barriers and providing for orphans' basic needs.
Originally named after the Chapmans' first daughter, Shaohannah, Show Hope also runs a six-story facility in China to provide medical care to orphans. "Adoption has kinda become the heartbeat of our family and of our life and of our marriage. It's our family's story. I’ve gone now to a whole new place in my experience of what it really means to love and to be loved." Learn more about Show Hope and find out how to get involved at http://showhope.org/.
