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

The Party!





John's birthday party was on Sunday. We had strict instructions to our guests.....if they were sick, been around someone who was sick, or thought they may be getting sick....we asked that they please stay at home. So, with everyone being extra cautious, our list of about 50 close friends and family turned into about 30. As much as we wanted everyone there, we were so thankful that they kept their germs to themselves.

They party was a lot of fun. My dad made an amazing video of John's first year. I prepared myself by watching it numerous times before the party.......it didn't help, I still cried!

John loved when we sang happy birthday to him. He just sat their with a huge smile on his face. He was such a champ.......but then again, isn't he always?????
