Welcome Baby Buns in the Oven
Fast forward, just two weeks, Dana found herself in ICU with the possibility of not being able to keep her miracle. But she held on to "Baby Buns" and her faith in God. She risked her life every moment that she refused to deliver.
Baby Kaleb Arkell Graves, was born on October 20, 2015 at 1:08 PM, during the 24th week, which doctor's consider to be the first week of possible viability outside of the womb. This makes him 16 weeks early. His actual due date was supposed to be February 16th.
Arkell and Dana were not prepared that a doctor's visit on that day, two weeks ago would be the last time that Dana would be at home. She is currently in the hospital because she is still battling her own health issues, as well as Kaleb being taken care of in the NICU.
This Go Fund Me page was created by Dana's sister with the purpose of helping to offset some of the expenses of the enormous hospital bills and to have a beautiful, well-deserved nursery for Baby Kaleb created for his arrival home in a few months (we are claiming this in faith!)
All help is appreciated, but they need your prayers even more. They are very humble people and are usually the first to support others. You may follow their journey on their official Facebook page, Arkell and Dana's Baby Bun.

Ms. Dana My heart broke when i saw this. You may or may not remember me but i remember you. You were the manager at African General and we used to have long talks.. How i have missed you. I wanted to say keep your faith my son RJ was born at 23 weeks at 17weeks early. He is now 12 years old. I am here for you with any questions and all prayers. Remember 1step forward 2 steps back. It will all work out. HIS IS GOOD. God's Blessings always...
Grateful, humbled, blessed and scared. These are just some of the words that describe the feelings I am having. I really appreciate my sister, Melanie Griffin-Hamlin , for setting up this account due to the overwhelming number of request received. So many people have unified their hearts and prayers for Kaleb and for that I am appreciative. I believe God made so many people knowledgeable of BabyBuns aka. Kaleb and He will ultimately get the glory but we will go through some adversities. I am thankful for the network and union that has been formed to help me through this difficult time. I know he's our miracle but my heart still ache for the suffering he endures daily. Thank you all and keep our family in your prayers as I will do the same for each of you!!
Hello, I am definitely praying. My miracle baby came last year on 12/24/14....12 weeks early because of the same issue (preeclampsia/high blood pressure). Weighing only 2 pounds, I had to wait 3 longs months to bring him home but today he is almost 17 pounds and is a thriving baby full of energy.....God can....
I can not express how grateful I am for each of you to bless our family. I am humbled and honored. If possible, I would love to send a thank you card so if you send me your mailing address I will send pictures of Kaleb. May God continue to bless you and please keep our family in your prayers. #TeamKaleb
May God bless Kaleb and all of you in these upcoming days! I saw his homecoming this morning on GMA and cried tears of joy for you. My daughter was in the NICU for a month and I remember the excitement of finally getting her home. I'm sure yours is hundred fold! Praise God and thanking Him in advance for the strength and protection He will continue to provide in Kaleb's medical treatments!
I am sending out much prayers for Kaleb's healing and your families strength. I just saw your video for the first time and immediately it touched my heart. Kaleb is such a beautiful baby and I'm praying for that day when he will be out in the yard playing with daddy and big brother. With His Stripes we are Healed.
