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

Prayers Please!

Once again we ask you to pray for our little man.  He is undergoing anesthesia this week for an MRI and will be intubated (just saying that word makes my stomach turn.)  We know this procedure will be done quickly but still ask for your prayers (as we KNOW God listens.)  John's last surgery of any kind was performed before his 1st birthday (praise God) so being back in the hospital brings back a lot of painful memories.  We will keep you updated and will dedicate an entire post as to why he is having an MRI in the first place (possible candidate for a life changing surgery.)

Paint on the nose!  Sign of a GREAT day at school.
