Christian artist Steven Curtis Chapman and wife Mary Beth Chapman are celebrating the grand opening of their new adoption facility in the Henan province of China.

Maria's Big House of Hope -- a healing home dedicated to special needs orphans in China -- was named in memory of their adopted daughter, Maria Sue Chunxi Chapman, who was killed in an accident last year.

The facility is equipped with 128 beds and staffed with 190 nurses. It will provide services from minor orthopedic surgeries to hospice and chronic care.

Every orphan in the facility is 5 years old or younger and represents some of the neediest orphans in China.

"This caring facility will be a beacon of hope to the people of China and the world," a press release from stated. "Henan is one of the poorest provinces in all of China."
During the ribbon cutting, Steven sang the song "Yours" and gave all the credit to God.

The Chapmans hope that by providing medical care for the orphans, it will increase their chances of being adopted.
