Thank you to all the families that sent in photos with your beautiful adopted photos. It's amazing to know that so many of you guys have built your families through adoption. We were able to showcase the slideshow for the first time as our background for our GMA dove award performance.  We're going to start incorporating the slideshow into the Make Your Move Tour this week.
Many of you have asked where you can purchase the ADOPTED tees showcased in the music video and on the dove performance. We've asked Show Hope to let us know as soon as the shirts are available, and we'll link to their site to purchase.
Show Hope is a non-profit organization that mobilizes individuals and communities to meet the most pressing needs of orphans in distress by providing 1) homes for waiting children through adoption aid grants, and 2) life-saving medical care for orphans with special needs.
Established in 2003 as Shaohannah's Hope, Steven Curtis Chapman and his wife, Mary Beth initially founded Show Hope out of their desire to see more children find their way into forever families. Though many families they talked to were willing to adopt, the financial costs to adoption were simply too high.
Originally named after the Chapman's first adopted daughter, Shaohannah Hope Chapman, Shaohannah's Hope has grown far beyond the initial vision of helping a few orphans find homes. In 2009, after changing the name to Show Hope, this organization has seen an amazing explosion in growth. From a six-story caring facility in China, equipped to provide surgeries and medical care to special needs orphans, to multiplying the effects of the adoption grant program by assisting churches in setting up their own adoption funds, Show Hope continues to expand its remarkable worldwide impact.

147 Million Orphans
We are two moms who love orphans! We met six years ago as we were both going through our first adoptions (one domestic and one international) … Thirteen kids and seven adoptions later, we are bound together through faith and mission. We love "doing life together" and accepting the call to SPEAK UP FOR ORPHANS everywhere. We want to help as many people as possible to see the 147 million orphans as scripture calls them, "…those who have no voice." We want you to see YOUR PART in helping change the life of an orphan. Could it be adoption, sponsoring a child, volunteering for orphan care ministry, rocking babies at an orphanage, financially supporting someone adopting, or buying these products?

Foster Cares Support Foundation
What started in the founders' garage in 1997 because of a realization that there was a tremendous lack of support for foster children in crisis resulted in the creation of a unique resource for our most at risk children in Georgia. The Foster Care Support Foundation, a non-profit, volunteer driven organization gives free clothes, toys and safe infant-care equipment to some of Georgia's 13,300 foster children. The organization quickly grew from serving 864 children in its first year of incorporation in 2000 to almost 4000 children in 2008.
