My heart breaks for Steven Curtis Chapman and his family.  Their five-year-old daughter was killed in a tragic accident on Wednesday, when she was hit by an SUV in their driveway.  Her older brother was backing up and did not see Maria.  Please pray for the Chapmans as they grieve for their sweet little girl, and pray also for protection over their family.  The Chapmans are strong advocates of adoption and have adopted three little girls from China.  They started Shaohannah’s Hope, named in honor of their first adopted daughter; the organization provides grants to adopting families and encourages adoption.   Steven Curtis Chapman is a Grammy award-winning Christian music artist.  Please pray for them during this difficult time.
