How does a family go from having no idea about orphans and no intention whatsoever to adopt to getting on a plane in 5 days to go get twins from China who are 9 years old going on 10?
It's simple: hang around Steven Curtis Chapman just a little and get to know his and Mary Beth's friends at their "Show Hope" orphan ministry events, who just happen to be the "heavy hitters" of the orphan cause. THEN, go on a short term mission trip to China, only with intentions of continuing your giving ministry and meet these orphans face to face and watch God lay His heart on your husband and transform him before your eyes. Then just go ahead and try to go home and resume your life, but you may as well get your white flag out, wave it around, get ready for the paperwork adventure of your life, pull out your checkbook, book your tickets, and get your heart ready to expand by 2! :o)
