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. - Jim Houser (Manager)

I am truly heart broken for this family! We need to pray pray pray!!!
SCC wrote a song for his new 3 daughters called Cinderella. It is a must hear, but it is also a Kleenex box song! (it has always been a tear jerker, but especially now... look at the lyrics). Since he is a musician, his life was hectic with his first 3 (birth) children. When he adopted his last 3, he decided he needed a change. This song is about enjoying your kids while you can... here is a taste of the lyrics... you need to go to itunes to buy it though...
"so I will dance with Cinderella, whiles she is here in my arms, cause I know something the prince never knew. I will dance will Cinderella, I don't want to miss even one song, cause all too soon the clock will strike midnight and she'll be gone."
To the Chapman family, even if you never read this... Maria Sue is dancin for Jesus now, and she is waiting until y'all come to be with her too! ♥
