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

Bye Bye Button

Seven years ago this month (five months after we brought our boy home from the NICU with an NG tube) we elected to have a G-tube surgically placed in John's stomach because our son would not eat....and we knew this was best for him.  We also knew that with the severity of his brain bleed he may never get his tube removed and the chances of him eating by mouth were slim.

Fast forward to yesterday....when John got his button removed!!!!!!

We could not be more proud of his drive, determination and positive attitude.  It wasn't easy but he NEVER GAVE UP.  He continues to amaze us daily and reminds us that anything is possible.

We are blessed beyond measure!
