Tragic News


Please pray for the Chapman family.

Maria, the five year old daughter of Steven Curtis Chapman, was killed in the driveway of their home yesterday after being hit by a car. Sadly this car was driven by one of her older brothers, who did not see her playing in the driveway.

Singer/songwriter Chapman, who recently was inducted into Music City Walk of Fame, is one of contemporary Christian music’s most recognizable and most awarded names. He and his wife Mary Beth have long been supporters of international adoption, having brought three girls from China into their family. Maria was the youngest.The couple is so active in the cause that they formed an organization, Shaohannah’s Hope, to aid families wanting to adopt.

I cannot even begin to imagine the grief and sadness that they must be feeling.
