Sometimes I forget just how tiny Jack was when he was born.
Pin It!

The differnce between this picture and your website banner is just incredible. Were you intetested in photography before you had Jack or did that interest grow once you had him?

I know the difference is amazing. As for photography - I've always been interested and loved photography... but I never had a good camera and didn't really know anything about it. Now I'm slowly learning and I just love it. LOVE IT!

Absolutely incredible. We don't have any photos of Marissa from when she was that tiny so it just amazes me when I see these pictures and think about her being that small, too. Just look at the young man Jack has become!

I agree - the difference is startling! I think you should link back to that post you did where you recreated the pictures you took - I always loved the one of him in the hat. :) Such a testament to God's power!

Thank you so much for sharing your story and blogging about your journey. I had Triplets at 27 weeks and 3 days and lost one of my daughters four days after deliverying due to underdeveloped lungs and my son was in the NICU for 3 months and my daughter for 4.5 months. They will be one on 9/6/11. My daughter is on oxygen still. One of the moms in one of the multiples groups I belong to told me about your blog. I have been following it ever since and I am so thankful for it. Your posts help me to know others have gone through a similar preemie journey and the feelings and emotions that come with it are very similar. What you are doing is a blessing. I can bet a lot of other mom's are very thankful for your blog. Your son has come a long way. He is very cute. I just wanted to send my well wishes to you and your family and let you know how blessed I am to have been told about your blog. You should consider writing a book. Your blogs are right on with how many of us have felt during our journey with the NICU life, etc. Thanks again.

Wow. What a reminder of how far God's grace brings us....Jack is a beautiful picture of how God's love and grace can grow in/through us.

I don't envy the turmoil and struggle you've been through, but at the same time I see the massive amount of God's presence poured into your lives because of that very suffering...and it makes me want that kind of presence/openness/constantly realized need for God to grow in my life, no matter the cost. That is the place to be and sometimes (most often, perhaps?) it's really difficult to experience when everything is really comfortable and easy in life. I speak only from my experience, however :)
