Building on the Firm Foundation

Dear Show Hope Family,

It can never be said enough: We are profoundly grateful for each and every one of you, particularly as we reflect upon the incredible journey that is Show Hope. As we think back on this “great adventure,” we are reminded of Jesus’ parable of the mustard seed. In Luke’s Gospel, we read Jesus’ words, “What is the kingdom of God like? And to what shall I compare it? It is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his garden, and it grew and became a tree, and the birds of the air made nests in its branches” (Luke 13:18-19). It is humbling and breathtaking to imagine how God is using Show Hope to further his kingdom, with children and families finding a haven of love, care, and support through this work. The stories we hear to this day and the healing we continue to witness are a testimony of God working in and among His people to love and bring families to life. Thank you for being a part of the Show Hope story.

As we are stepping into the next 20 years of Show Hope, we stand poised to build upon the firm foundation that God has laid. With Adoption Aid as our cornerstone, our commitment to breaking down the financial barrier between waiting children and families remains steadfast, and with our growing Medical Care grants and Pre+Post Adoption Support work, we will persevere in going deeper with children and families. We recognize that physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are deeply interconnected, and our collaborations with partners around the world will continue in providing ways to help serve children and families holistically.

The adoption journey is a lifelong commitment, and Show Hope is committed to walking alongside families, offering support, resources, and community at every step. No family should feel alone in their journey, and we are dedicated to being a source of strength and encouragement through our efforts to equip and empower these families. It is the call we lay claim to in James 1:27, “Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you” (New Living Translation).

And so, as we embrace and embark on the future, we invite you to continue journeying with us, with children and families, and with entire communities here in the U.S. and around the globe. God has used your prayers, support, and generosity to make this work possible and will continue in the days, weeks, months, and years ahead. “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now” (Philippians 1:3-5).

Moving forward,

Mary Beth & Steven Curtis Chapman
