About Show Hope...

 The orphan crisis overwhelms me. I often find myself in a puddle of horrific facts wondering how I could possibly help a situation as massive as this one. But being an adopted child, I cannot forget about those children who do not have families.

I love Show Hope because they make helping feel more manageable. Show Hope addresses many facets of the worldwide orphan crisis and is making positive and encouraging strides towards a problem that needs this sort of comprehensive attention.

From Show Hope's Website...

Show Hope is a non-profit organization that mobilizes individuals and communities to meet the most pressing needs of orphans in distress by providing 1) homes for waiting children through adoption aid grants, and 2) life-saving medical care for orphans with special needs.  

Established in 2003 as Shaohannah’s Hope, Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth initially founded Show Hope out of their desire to see more children find their way into forever families. 

Show Hope is dedicated to engaging the church to care for orphans and reducing the financial barriers to adoption. This means that we are actively involved in three areas:

  1. Adoption Aid: providing waiting orphans with loving families by financially assisting adoptive couples through adoption grants. More on Adoption Aid
  2. Orphan Care: participating in orphan care projects that address the holistic needs of orphans—physically, emotionally and spiritually, with the ultimate goal of helping to place the child in the best permanent situation possible, ideally a forever family. More on Orphan Care
  3. Getting Involved: mobilizing individuals and communities to care for orphans through our Adoption Aid and Orphan Care programs. More on Getting Involved
There is so much information on Show Hope's website...about the orphan crisis, about what they do, about what you can do. I hope that you'll take a few minutes explore all the wonderful hope they really do offer!
