Mary Beth and her husband Steven have been married for 25 years and have six children: Emily (24), Caleb (20), Will Franklin (19), and Shaohannah Hope (10), Stevey Joy (7), and Maria Sue, who went to be with Jesus May 21, 2008. Mary Beth bares her heart and soul in her book debut, Choosing to SEE, as she shares honestly about her personal journey - from her childhood, to challenges of married life, to the sudden and tragic loss of their daughter. Throughout the pages, she tackles these questions with grace, grit, insight, and most of all, hope.

In 2001, the Chapmans began an adoption ministry, Show Hope, which began as an assistance to families in the process of adoption, particularly by helping tear down the financial barrier that prevents many from bringing an adopted child into their home. To date, Show Hope is now an internationally recognized voice for orphan advocacy and has given over 2,500 financial grants, affecting the lives of children from 45 different countries, including the United States. In addition to giving financial grants, Show Hope empowers families, churches and communities with adoption and orphan care resources and advocacy efforts. Mary Beth currently serves as the ministry's president. Along with her husband, she has also co-authored three books for their Shaoey and Dot children's series, and she continues to write a compelling blog found on her website. The family resides in middle Tennessee.
