It was less than a month ago when Dana Griffin-Graves surprised her husband Arkell with news that she was pregnant. Dana filmed Arkell’s reaction and it immediately went viral.


For over 17 years, the husband and wife have been trying to have a child, and after several miscarriages and a still birth, their dream was finally coming true. But over the weekend, Dana was rushed to the emergency room and delivered their new baby boy, Kaleb, 16 weeks early.

The couple announced on their Facebook page, Arkell & Dana’s Baby Bun, that both baby and mother were in critical care.

Today, our baby will have to be delivered, at 23 weeks and one day. As Dana is in critical care, her body has endured…

Yesterday, Arkell updated their Facebook fans with a message asking for more prayers, and mentioned in the comment section that Kaleb is in critical condition.

The love and support from all over is amazing! Thank you for your continued prayers. Our miracle is giving HOPE back to so many and we are blessed to be a part of it! God bless each of you!

Many commenters on the Facebook page have showered the family with words of encouragement, as well as their own stories of giving birth to a premie baby.

We’re definitely sending our positive thoughts out to Dana, Arkell and baby Kaleb!
