Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife Mary Beth founded Show Hope, an orphan care and adoption ministry in 2003. To commemorate their astounding 10 years of service, they've announced a 10-Year Anniversary Celebration over Memorial Day weekend at both the Show Hope office in Franklin and Lipscomb University in Nashville.

Since opening, Show Hope has had a long list of achievements. By awarding financial grants, they've helped almost 4,000 orphans find adoptive families. They've also provided medical care resources for over 1,000 orphans with special needs. Show Hope's flagship center, Maria's Big House of Hope, is located in China along with three other Special Care Centers. They've also been on the forefront of saving the Adoption Tax Credit. All of Show Hope's incredible contributions have been made possible by the generosity of thousands of donors.

Show Hope has also been reaching out to artists and musicians to help with the cause. Show Hope has hosted celebratory events such as Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella, which has sold out every year for the last three years.

Show Hope has also started school-oriented initiatives such as The Red Bus Project, for college age, and The Movement Clubs, for high school students.

The Ten-Year Celebration is open to the public. Go to to find out more.
