The Nie Recovery

Some of you who are obsessive bloggers and blog-readers like myself may have also come across the story of Stephanie and Christian Nielson who were involved in a plane crash on August 16th (read the story here). I don't remember where I first came across the news, but I have since spent hours (yes actual hours of my days) reading about this cute family and their extended family. I have read the old posts on Stephanie's blog, The NieNie Dialogues, and now check her sister's blog, C Jane Enjoy It, daily (and have read all her old posts as well).
The accident itself was obviously a tragedy, but I have been so moved reading about how this family has come together to support one another and how many other bloggers are doing what they can to help as well. Although I may not be in a position to donate to their recovery, spreading the word so they receive extra prayers is something I can do!

i just found her blog last week...but i will for sure be keeping up with them as they recover from their tragic accident.
i wondered if anyone else sat and read her blog archives but me! (and yes...i even went back and read her other older blog too)...i love the way she writes with humor and warmth about motherhood...she has definitely inspired me. :)

It's amazing how quickly the word spreads. Nie is everywhere...how wonderful of you to spread the news. I'm working on my own post tonight.

Thanks for sharing this Marci. I just spent way too much time reading up on all the blogs. What an amazing story. I'm going to add their button and add their name to the prayer roll. What a beautiful family.
