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

Happy 3rd Birthday John! Beautiful montage. Wow! is all I can say. How far John has come is not only a testament to what God has planned for this heaven sent bundle of energy but it is also a testament to how strongly and deeply parents love their children. Congratulations to all of you on how much you have accomplished in just 3 years. Bravo!! - a fan in NJ

Happy 3rd birthday John Craig. We are all so proud of you. You have shown so many how to be strong, happy and loving. Every little thing you do is a miracle. You continue to blossom with the help of God ( and with a little help from Dad, Mom and Grams).

I cannot stop watching this montage. My tears are not sadness, but a feeling of pride and thanks.

Keep up the good work. We love you so much.

PS Mommy, show John enjoying his new slide. What a champ....

There is but one John Craig in this great big world, just as God planned. You amaze, astonish, and inspire each of us who are privileged to be a part of your life. Plus your "Little Engine" determination sets an example for all. We are sooooooooo proud of you and all that you CAN do!

Happy 3rd birthday, big guy! You are the one with the birthday presents today, but none of the gifts are more precious than the smiles you give to my heart!

Oodles of love,
Grams and Grandpa
