This is the amazing story of our micro preemie, John Craig. He was born on November 30, 2005 at 24 weeks and 5 days gestation. He weighed 1 pound 8 ounces and was 12 inches long. John is a true miracle and an inspiration to all that meet him!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29.11

Jeannine shared your website with me. This is so wonderful. I read back through October, what a wonderful thing you are doing for your friends and family. I remember Ibi having that little diaper and us all praying for you. I can not believe it is a year later. He is an amazing miracle. Bless you and your whole family
