A super cute photo of Emmy holding Marcus the day we adopted him - "The Chocolate Covered Pretzel Baby!"
In Spring of 2011, our family was preparing to adopt. I encouraged my kids to pray about how God would provide for this adoption. Soon after praying, my 11 year old daughter, Sarah, told me she felt we should go door to door selling chocolate covered pretzels. I really only agreed to this to support her and secretly prayed people would buy the pretzels so we didn’t lose money on the endeavor. Long story short, we quickly sold out. Several people volunteered to put our pretzels in their workplace and within a short period of time we were in 32 locations. Our fundraiser was in full swing and God provided us the money for the adoption through our pretzel sales.
