Have you read about this? I felt like crying when I read this. I have always really like Steven Curtis Chapman and his family. They seem so real.

Maria Sue Chapman (2003-2008)
Maria Sue Chapman, adopted and youngest daughter to Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman, was killed Wednesday night in a tragic accident in the family driveway on Wednesday evening. She was LifeFlighted to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital but for only reasons God can explain she went home to Him... not to Franklin as we all so desperately wanted.

Your prayers are needed for all in the Chapman family. This is a family who has so generously loved and given to so many. Just hours before this close knit family was celebrating the engagement of the oldest daughter Emily Chapman, and were just hours away from a graduation party marking Caleb Chapman's completion of high school. Now, they are preparing to bury a child who blew out 5 candles on a birthday cake less than 10 days ago. These words are unthinkable to type. And yet we trust in a God who was not surprised by this and because of Jesus I am certain through faith in Him we will see Maria again. - Jim Houser (Manager)

What this quote doesn't mention is that one of his sons was driving the car. That makes it incredibly harder on the family. Please pray.
* By mail, send to PO Box 150156 Nashville, TN 37215.
* In lieu of flowers, the Chapmans request any gifts be directed to Shaohannah’s Hope.

In the words of SCC:
"We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end."

This is incredibly sad. Thanks for passing it along. We will definitely be praying.

Thanks for the address. I hadn't known how to reach out. I saw it on the FoxNews site this morning and have been praying for them. It is so sad, yet God is sovereign in this hard hard thing. I don't understand it, but I do trust His ways. I've been especially burdened for the teenaged brother. What a difficult thing to walk through.

Does anyone here know when we'll see some pictures of Jared's house? I've been checking Hannah's blog and Mrs. Shelton's blog... but nobody has anything up. I guess its up to you, Faith.

Or at least tell us where it is so we can spy on him with google maps.

I don't have any pictures. That might be a good idea. I don't think anyone has taken any pictures. He might wait until everything is in order. Maybe I could trade you photos of your house for pictures of Jared's house.
