After feeling a specific calling from God, Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman experienced the miracle of adoption in welcoming three daughters from China into their family. 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, permanent families.
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.
