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

Nemo

John's first experience with trick or treating was......HOT!!!! As you can see by the pictures, we had to strip him down to his diaper and then put his costume on.

Getting ready to trick or treat

And we're off...

Part of the gang...

Montana, cousin Ashley, Kyla, Brayden, cousin Jack, Connor, Kaiden, and John

Our WALKING fish!

It was great....I could hear people all night saying, "Wow, John is doing so good!"

It was really cute...we put John's costume on outside, gave him his walker, and then he walked into the house with his head held high (and very proud of himself....rightfully so!)

I've said it before and I'll say it again (every day for the rest of my life, ) we are so proud of our little man and praise God daily for the gift he's given us.

Halloween 2008 was so much fun!!!
