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

We are extremely thankful for our wonderful family and friends, our health and our happiness....and, for all of the things that John CAN do!

He is a pro at walking and gets going pretty fast now. My poor 95 year old Grandma just about got run over by him yesterday! There is no stopping this little man of mine!!!!

I have spent the better part of Sunday and Monday reading your blog. I started from the first post. I shed so many tears while reading. I am the mother of a 26 weeker with grade III bilateral bleeds. My son developed hydrocephalus from his bleeds and had to be shunted at 2 1/2 months. He has had 8 shunt revisions in 4 months, 2 of them were by craniotomy. He is now 8 months old and receives PT, OT and EI. Reading your blogs felt like reminisicing.

I am pleased to see how great your son is doing. It give me so much to look forward to.
