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

Happy Valentines Day!

I cannot believe it has already been a year since the announcement of our pregnancy..........and now my precious girl is 6 months old!!!

All is well in the Birtch home. We are enjoying the beautiful AZ weather and spending as much time outside as possible.

Daddy taught John how to open the mailbox.
Once opened he sticks his head inside and says, "Hello! Anybody there?"
Hope is wondering what in the world I am giving here!
Not sure if she liked the green peas....not much went in her mouth:)
