Sad News

Such tragic news of the death of Stephen Curtis Chapmans youngest daughter Maria who was killed on Wednesday evening. My heart just breaks for that family right now, please keep them in your prayers and extra special prayers for their son.

Our decision to adopt was made after attending one of Stephen's concert back in November of 2004 and we will be forever grateful that God used him to plant that seed in our hearts. He has such a huge passion for the orphaned children of China and has done amazing things through his Shaohannah's Hope Organization. They have set up a memorial fund for Maria on their site they have also set up a family blog which shows a small glimpse of the amazing spirit of sweet Maria. Again, I cannot image the loss and pain they are feeling right now, all we can do is pray that God will continue to carry them through this unimageable time.
