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 Father's Day to the BEST Daddy EVER!!!!  Our kids are blessed to have such an amazing, loving, caring, encouraging and supportive Daddy like you.

I'll NEVER forgot the day in the NICU (day 9 to be exact) when the Dr.'s sat us all down and told us everything that would be wrong with John and then encouraged us to take him off life support.  THANK YOU for cutting them off mid sentence and telling them to do whatever it takes to save our son. THANK YOU for reminding me daily that no matter what the outcome, he was OUR son and he would be loved unconditionally.  THANK YOU for supporting me (and taking care of John) through a very rough pregnancy with our little girl. THANK YOU for giving me the two most PERFECT children in the world.  THANK YOU for being you and for ALL you do for us!

We love you Daddy and hope you have a wonderful day!
