Show Hope & United Concert!

                                                    Our 3 girls at the Show Hope booth!

    Klaire & Hannah working at the Show Hope booth to help find more of their 
                       friends in other countries a home!

                                                                    Sweet friends! 

                                                 SCC singing "Cinderella"!  

                          Klaire & Hannah dancing like Cinderella while SCC sang!

   We had the wonderful opportunity to give back to a special organization, Show Hope, formerly known as Shaohannah's Hope.   Steven Curtis Chapman & his wife, Mary Beth started this organization several years ago to help families with the expense of adoption!  We were so blessed to receive a $3,000 grant from them when we adopted Klaire!  What a blessing this organization has been to us!  We volunteered at their booth on Monday night during the United tour of SCC and Michael W. Smith! 
     It was so much fun to work with our adoptive friends that we haven't seen in awhile!   There were so many little Chinese girls running around it was so fun!  Hannah and Klaire hadn't seen each other in awhile, but you would have thought they were the best of friends!  It was so sweet to watch them together! Linette, we will have to get them together soon! :) They had a blast and helped us at the table!  It was great to catch up with the families and hear about what is going on in their lives.
   We got to listen to most of the concert and it was AWESOME!!!  It was great to hear SCC's testimony of their family and how God has brought them through the tragedy of their precious Maria's death.  It was so special to hear him sing "Cinderella".  As he sang, Klaire and her friend Hannah decided to get up and dance!  It brought tears to my eyes seeing them dance.   We take so much for granted everyday.  I pray that we will just take the time to dance with our kids and not let the worries or cares of the day pass us by because we are too busy!   Life is too short to pass up these precious moments!  
   Thank you Show Hope for a great night for my family!!!

  1. So glad you guys had this opportunity! Last March my family and I did the same thing! It was such an incredible experience (Christopher even got to get on stage and sing with him during one of his songs!!!) I think I still have the video of it up on my facebook page under "videos" if you want to check it out. It's amazing to think of all the orphans and families show hope has helped bring together. So awesome!!!
