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

6th Birthday Party

We celebrated John's 6th birthday this weekend and boy was it fun!  All of his cousins, friends and almost his entire class came (they are such a sweet group of kids.)  We played in the park, had a kickball game (it was the funniest thing I've ever seen,) ate hotdogs for dinner and baseball cupcakes for dessert.  The day couldn't have gone any better.

Thank you to everyone who made this day so special.  He had the BEST time and is still smiling about it!!!
