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

Thanksgiving

Today is John's first Thanksgiving..........outside of my belly! And, his first taste of mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie! I'll let you know how that goes.

We are so extremely thankful today (and everyday) to have our little boy with us and to have such amazing friends and family. Your love and support through this journey has been so appreciated. Just knowing all of you are out there praying for us is incredibly comforting.

I hope everyone feels as blessed as we do today and may all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.


Happy Turkey Day! Look at his poor eyes:(


"Look at me!" He can only balance for a few seconds and then he takes a nose dive. He never gives up though....that's my boy!


John's first shiner.....and yet he's still smiling! AMAZING!!!


My poor baby.......just a few hours after surgery.


John's first Firetruck adventure! However, he really can't wait to play in Daddy's Police Car!
