Mary Beth Chapman, co-founder of Show Hope and chairman of the board of the National Council for Adoption announced her induction into the Adoption Hall of Fame for 2023 at the end of October. This award recognizes those who demonstrate outstanding dedication and sacrifice in service to the cause and practice of adoption.
Mary Beth has led Show Hope for more than 20 year in advocating and supporting children and families. She has helped Show Hope become a voice of international recognition in the field of adoption and child welfare. Since our founding in 2003, more than 8,600 children have come to know the love and permanency of a family through the financial support of Show Hope’s Adoption Aid grants while nearly 140,000 parents, caregivers, and professionals have received practical resources and training through our annual Hope for the Journey Conference. More than 2,700 children have received care in multiple Show Hope-supported Centers throughout China for nearly 15 years. Today, our latest initiative, the Show Hope Medical Grant, aims to help families pay medical costs.
