From “Bun in the Oven” to Preemie—Watching This Mama Singing Praises in the NICU is Almost Too Much

Remember this “bun in the oven” pregnancy announcement when Dana Griffin-Graves surprised her husband Arkell with the news that she was 5 months pregnant? After 17 years, 1 stillborn, and 4 miscarriages, Arkell was understandably WRECKED with joy!


It’s easy to see why this emotional pregnancy announcement went mega-viral!

The Graves’ joy was interrupted when Dana went into labor much too early at just 6 months pregnant. Little Kaleb Arkell Graves was born at 24 weeks and it was a scary time for the new parents. However, 2 weeks after his birth, Kaleb is doing well  in the NICU! This sweet video of his mama singing to him is completely FULL of joy! Grab your tissues!

You can keep  up with Kaleb’s progress and his parents’ sweet updates about him on their family’s Facebook page. Congratulations, Graves family! We know God has a purpose for Kaleb and we’re praying he will get stronger and get to come home with you soon!
