he date of May 21st, 2008, was the worst day of Steven Curtis Chapman's life, for it was then that Chapman's five-year-old daughter, Maria Sue Chapman, was killed in an accident.
It occurred ten days after Maria's birthday when Maria was accidentally hit by her older brother Will while he was driving a Toyota Land Cruiser pulling into the driveway of their home in Franklin, Tennessee.
Maria, the youngest in the family, was one of three daughters whom Steven and his wife Mary Beth had adopted from China, and she was pronounced dead upon arrival at the hospital. Maria died from her injuries and blood loss.

The Cinderella song still brings tears to my eyes, knowing he lost his daughter and the story behind the song.
Chapman is a client of my husbands company and they used the same adoption agency for Stevie Joy and Maria that we did for our two adoptions.
This hit us hard when it happened and I can honestly say I had a few unpleasent conversations with God over it. I have never struggled with faith like I did over this little girls death.
I wish they would just let this go. I feel so bad for the son the more this is strung out. It’s not all about Stephen Chapman, it’s more about his son who has to live with this day in and day out. The rehashing of it over and over by his father cannot be a good thing for Will. My heart aches for him.
“They” who? It was the writer of the story that dredged it up again.
Basically all of them. Stephen gave the interview. I feel so badly about the whole situation, but I feel that the son is the one that has to really deal with this. It must tear him apart everytime this comes to light again and again.
I agree fully. I know that if I was responsible for that kind of death, I woudl barely be able to live with myself. There is something in “forgive and forget”.
