Jonathan and Sarah have the joy of raising two sons, Josiah and Jordan, currently ages 11 and 9. Jordan, the youngest son, was born allergic to all food except sweet potato. He was also on the severe end of the autism spectrum. God used Sarah’s research to bring healing to Jordan’s body so now he can eat most foods and while he still has struggles, he would no longer be diagnosable as autistic. God used their experience to create a burden to come alongside the parents of children with special needs.
