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

Hello,

I have been reading your blogs for a while and I think you have an amazing boy and you are such a great mom!! I hope you don't mind me asking, but I am wondering how John is doing with eating. Is he still using his g-tube ? Do you do feeding therapy with him at all ? Take care and I look forward to seeing more pictures of John and watching him grow up. He is one handsome little guy

HI Jill. Put a copy of my button (found on my blog) on your next post and we will get started with the fundraising. You are close to your goal, but let's help the team reach theirs. I am so excited!!

Wow.....great video!

Brought tears to my eyes. When you are a NICU mama...those memories never fade and are all too tender even 7 years later!

My regret is that we didn't take enough NICU pics. I always feared that if they didn't make it (survive), i didn't want too many pics to remember the pain.
Our God is sooo awesome, though. He can do miracles and your John and my girls are LIVING proof!

HUGS!
