After the adoption of their first daughter, Shaohannah Hope, in 2000, Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman desperately wanted to do something about the millions of waiting children who still needed loving families. Combining both the platform and resources with which they had been entrusted, they started Show Hope in 2003. Since inception, Show Hope has helped provide forever homes through Adoption Aid grants for more than 5,500 orphans from over 50 countries, including the U.S. In addition, more than 2,000 orphans with special needs have received critically needed medical care through Show Hope's Care Centers in China. Furthermore, Show Hope is helping bring the hope of healing to thousands of children by championing adequate Pre+Post Adoption Support for families and pertinent professionals. Mobilizing countless individuals, students, families, and churches to care for orphans, Show Hope's efforts have helped restore the hope of a family to many waiting children around the world.
