Our Story

Show Hope is a movement to care for orphans. We work to restore hope by breaking down barriers that exist between waiting children and loving families.

Founders' Story

After feeling a specific calling from God, the Chapmans experienced the miracle of adoption in welcoming three daughters home from China. After the adoption of their first daughter, Shaohannah Hope, in 2000, the Chapmans desperately wanted to do something about the millions of waiting children still in need of loving families.

Remembering Maria

Maria Sue Chapman, the youngest daughter of Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, was adopted from China in 2004. As the youngest of the family, she was always full of energy, and Mary Beth and Steven know that their family would never have been complete without her.

Staff + Board

Our talented staff is comprised of individuals working together for the sake of orphans around the world, and Show Hope’s Board of Directors guides and protects the mission and purpose of the organization, ensuring we carry those out with excellence, integrity, and accountability.
