A Night to Remember

I am so excited today.  Jon and I are volunteering at the Show Hope booth at the Steven Curtis Chapman and Family concert at Brookwood Church tonight!!  I know it's going to be a great time.  We love to help out in any way we can when it comes to adoption and promoting it.  We have walked the road of international adoption and are eager and willing to help others find their way to their forever child also!
But Show Hope is about so much more than adoption.  As you probably know, Mary Beth and Steven's youngest adopted daughter, Maria, was killed in a tragic accident a few years ago.  Mary Beth has recently released a book about this time in their lives, Choosing to SEE.  It is a must read...awesome testimony of God's grace and love.

 The Chapmans and Show Hope have opened Maria's Big House of Hope in China.  It is a 'hospital' of sorts where awaiting children (or those who are dying, sick, or severly disabled) go for healing and help.  They offer sponsorship of these children starting at $35 per month.  If you've been looking for a mission opportunity, check this one out!  What a difference you can make in the life of a child!  You may never know how much until you get to Heaven.  You can also make one time donations.

If you live near Simpsonville, SC come on over to Brookwood and see what I'm sure will be A Night to Remember with the Chapmans!
