When I decided to get into blogging, I didn't realize how much of a community exists. As a new but already invested member of that community, I am dedicating today's post to Stephanie and Christian Nielson. Stephanie is the creator of Nie Nie Dialogues, a blog that is truly enchanting.
"Nie," as her family calls her, and her husband (Christian) are the parents of four young children. They were recently involved in a small airplane crash in Arizona. Stephanie is burned over 80% of her body. Her husband is burned over 30% of his. Right now they are in critical condition, with chemically induced comas.
Needless to say, they need prayers for recovery and money to help pay for medical expenses and rehabilitation in the event they do recover. It looks like Christian will survive, but Stephanie is still touch-and-go, though her sister cJane (click here to view cJane's blog), is convinced she will make it and provides regular updates on her blog. I am adding my faith to cJane's.
As I said, Stephanie has a terrific blog of her own, (click here). I hope you'll take time to scroll down and read some of her posts that were written before the accident. It's clear she is a very cool lady with a great life and family. The Nielson children, who were not in the plane, are being cared for by two of their mother's sisters. (Aren't sisters the BEST thing ever? Mine sure are!)
