The Steven Curtis Chapman family supports adoption
Christian recording artist Steven Curtis Chapman rehearses at his home in Franklin, Tenn. (pop. 41,842), with a local children's choir for an upcoming tour.

"Listen to your heart,” the children sing. "You will hear a song.”

It was indeed a song in the heart of Chapman's oldest daughter, Emily, that inspired Steven, 42, and wife Mary Beth, 41, to adopt three daughters from China—Shaohannah, 6, Stevey Joy, 3, and Maria Sue, 2—and to start a foundation to help other families adopt. Eight years ago, Emily, then 11, took a mission trip to Haiti and was moved by the plight of the many orphans she saw there.
