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

My Boy Is Seven

I cannot believe this little man has been mine for seven years now!!!

On November 30th, he awoke to presents and a chocolate chip muffin, headed to school for some more celebrating and sweets with his friends and ended the day with more presents and more sugar!!!!!!

 The following day all of his friends gathered at the park for a soccer birthday party...where we played kickball:)  His friends were so sweet.....cheering him on during the game and whispering the happy birthday song so it wouldn't hurt his ears.

John, you are the most amazing, determined, courageous, brave, smart, funny and kind boy I know.  Thank you for landing us in Holland....I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
