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.

5 Years Ago

I cannot believe that in just a few short hours my little man is going to turn 5 years old!  Seriously, how did that happen?  

And even though the years fly by (much too quickly) I still remember EVERY little detail about the day John was born.
