"You Never Know How Strong You Are Until Being Strong Is Your Only Option"

It is a quote that forever changed our family one October (2010) morning. It was the day I went into preterm labor at 23 weeks and 5 days. After defeating the odds of medical science for 4 days our son, Caleb George was born at 1.10 ounces and 12.5 inches long. It was a four month journey that God carried us through every step of the way. We found so much peace and comfort through the support of our faith, friends and family. I wanted to try to create a resource of encouragement for other parents who may be going through the same circumstances of having a Micropreemie. I also hope to provide other resources that have helped us too. A MicroPreemie is a baby weighing less than 3 pounds. I also wanted to have something special for our family to look back on to remind us how faithful God has case we forget. I hope that you will enjoy our journey and adventures of raising our MicroPreemie. Please feel free to read Caleb's story at CaringBridge here.
