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

Daddy bought John (and Hope) 4 pumpkins at the store the other night. So today we put together Mr. Pumpkin Head!

John used his strong muscles to help put Mr. Pumpkin Head's arm in place......and he put it exactly where he wanted it to go!

He is so proud and rightfully so. He did this all by himself...all Daddy did was help push the pieces in.
Little Hope watched from the sidelines!
And here he is.....Circle!!!

I asked John what he wanted to name his pumpkin and he drew a circle with his hand and said, Circle.
