Happy National Adoption Day!
Every single day of my life is National Adoption Day, but it's still nice to have this day to recognize the special way my family was formed.
As I type this, Emmy is reading a book sitting next to me, the big girls and Pete are off getting her a surprise… just because. It's a Saturday thing that we do. Emmy and I have Mommy and Emmy mornings and Pete spends some time with Maddie and Ashley. That's what we do when we are in town at least, last Saturday though we were in Pennsylvania and this is how we spent the day… all together at a park enjoying each others company and a snack.
It's moments like today, and at the park that it really hits me how lucky I am to have this family… through both birth, and adoption. Honey Maid gets this and has long recognized and celebrated that while the makeup and day-to-day lives of families have evolved, the idea and importance of wholesome family connections remains the same.
It is no secret that the American family has changed.
Did you know that one in 12 married couples in the U.S. are interracial, that nearly 40% of children don’t live with both of their biological parents and that only 62% of children live with their two biological parents. There are 125,000-plus same-sex couples currently raising children in the U.S. and more than 1.5 million American families have been touched by adoption.
Even with all this change, one thing has stayed the same. Love is what makes a family.
Like the American family, Honey Maid has continued to evolve across its 90 year heritage. From classic grahams to Teddy Grahams, Honey Maid’s wholesome products are made with whole grains and real honey, without high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, and are wholesome snacks families can agree on for any occasion.
While we were at the park we had some Honey Maid Grahamfuls.
They are so delicious and fun to eat. It's like a ready made s'more to go! Squished between two graham crackers is a perfect layer of marshmallow and chocolate!
I, of course took lot's of pictures that day!
This one was my favorite!
Honey Maid is Wholesome Snacking.
The classic graham cracker makes s’mores fun for the whole family, or simply serves as inspiration to create every day wholesome snacks like the Very Berry “Cheesecakes.”
