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

Life is Great!

Things are going very well in the Birtch home. John amazes us daily and we are so proud of him.
He can now...
  • Say (or try to say) a ton of new words
  • Draw a fabulous smile face...ears, hair, and all!
  • He can almost write his name...he has the J and o and part of the h!
  • Can eat an entire order of fries from In and Out:)
  • He's trying a lot of new foods
  • Gives the tightest hugs....he'll even grunt so you know how tight it is:)

Ohhhhh...and he also loves stickers.....if you couldn't tell. He placed them all over his face and kept them there a good chunk of the day.
