Jonathan David and Kari Alisa married on July 15, 2000. First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes… waiting. And more waiting. God knew what shape our family would take and when it would be formed, and then he took us through 7 1/2 years or preparation.

Our family was born Wednesday night at 19:31 (7:31 PM) at Good Sam. I will never forget the wave of emotion that swallowed me whole when I first saw our little girl. At 5 pounds, 10 ounces, she felt like a feather in my arms and an ocean in my heart. What a wondrous way to start a family. Welcome, Sarah Grace!
