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

A Birthday To Remember!

We had a fabulous time at John's 3rd birthday party.....the weather was perfect , the pizza and cupcakes were delicious, and the company was the BEST!!!!!!

John thoroughly enjoyed his pizza......hmmmmm, and they said he'd never eat!

Who isn't happy after a belly full of pizza?

I think he's sad because he ate all of his pizza!!!!

John's 3rd birthday cake! Thanks Grams!

Happy Birthday to you, Happy birthday to you.....

Sarah and Vienna!

Corrie and Ciera!

All the kids LOVED their party favors.....John used his glow in the dark necklace as a drumstick...

.....and to stick in his nose and act like a walrus!!!

He was very intrigued by the dancing light show!

I still cannot believe it has been 3 years since my little boy was born. It has been the hardest and the happiest 3 years of my life.....and I wouldn't change it for anything!

It looks like an incredible birthday! out did yourself. But if anyone deserves it - it is your big boy. I can't believe it has been three years. I will never forget the day I first saw your little miracle. I am so proud of him...and you.

Love you.
