Weighing Heavy on My Heart

24 Aug

I just learned through The Extraordinary Ordinary last week about tragic news that struck the family pictured above. The mommy in that picture is Stephanie Nielson, who has a blog called Love for Nie. She and her husband (Christian) were involved in the crash of a private plane that killed the pilot. Stephanie and Christian sustained serious burns and injuries and are expected to take months to recover. Stephanie’s sister is blogging about their recovery at her blog, C Jane Enjoy It.

Here’s what she said on August 22:

Both Christian and Steph have a major battle ahead of them, surgeries, skin grafts, fighting infections and body temperature regulations (to name a few). In my opinion, we aren’t out of the woods yet, but I have hope. And I have peace. And a willing heart to do my part. It’s all I can do. One thing I know for sure, there is much more of this story yet to be told.

Stephanie and Christian have 4 young children that Stephanie’s sister is caring for. The family would love to have cards sent to decorate their rooms (information is at C Jane Enjoy It), and they are also accepting donations. To find out other ways you can help, visit C Jane Enjoy It (there’s a list in the right sidebar), or click the button below to donate:

Feel free to add the button to your own blog, if you have one.
