Maria, the 5 year old daughter of Steven Curtis Chapman was killed last night. She was hit by an SUV driven by her brother who didn't see Maria in the driveway. The girl died later at the hospital. PLEASE PRAY for this family. Sweet Maria was adopted from China and the Chapman family has been monumental in growing the spirit of adoption throughout the country. Thousands of eyes are on them, watching and waiting to see how they will handle this incredible tragedy. My heart aches for them, and as I tossed and turned trying to fall asleep last night after hearing this news, my mind kept turning to this boy that accidently killed his sister. The guilt he feels must be incredible. I can't begin to fathom the emotions and turmoil that this family must feel. Please join me in prayer.
