The Main Thing:

For decades Show Hope has shown up for families pre and post adoption. Founded in 2003 by Steven and Mary Beth Chapman, Show Hope continues to be a light for families in the trenches of adoption. With a mission to engage the Church and eliminate barriers for those committing to the adoption process to grow their families, Show Hope has continued to expand opportunities for support. Most recently, their Medical Aid Grant program is helping families navigate a child’s medical needs after adoption finalization takes place.

We were thrilled when founder, Mary Beth Chapman, and Show Hope’s Executive Director, Emily Chapman Richards, agreed to join us on the podcast to discuss the new Medical Aid Grant program and the incredible work of Show Hope in the lives of adoptive families. It was an honor and privilege to share the mic with two women of incredible faith and passion for adoption. We’re so excited to share this conversation with you!
