THE WHEELER'S STORY

When you hear the Wheeler Family’s story, you’ll see why coming alongside them in this mission has been a complete no-brainer for us!

Emanuel and Kendra Wheeler are devoted local teachers and loving parents to three beautiful boys. A few years ago, they experienced unimaginable loss after their daughter, Dawson, passed away just a few hours after her birth.

Their heartache through the grieving process has blossomed into beautiful acts of kindness and remembrances in honor of Dawson. Surprisingly, one of the unexpected opportunities that they were presented with was adoption. After processing a myriad of questions, fears and doubts, it became clear that this was something God had placed on their hearts for a reason and they have bravely decided to open their hearts & home to the journey of adoption.

Share the love with this precious family!

FAQs

What extra food safety precautions are you taking?

We’re limiting the number of people involved in food prep by operating with only our leadership team, who will be wearing gloves and masks. We are also checking each person’s temperature before starting work each day. In addition to our usual food safety practices, we have increased the frequency for sanitizing of food contact surfaces, equipment, and utensils.

Will the food be hot when I get it?

Your Valentine’s meal will be properly chilled down after being prepared, and we provide easy instructions for reheating the meal.

What if I change my plans and want to cancel my order?

Valentine’s orders are non-refundable. However, you are welcome to transfer your order to someone else or give it as a gift! Please contact us at 843.757.4600 during standard business hours if you would like to do so.
