THANKFUL....

I have been emotionally consumed by this blog. The story is WORTH reading from start to end. It hits close to home since my husband is a pilot and we too have a small personal Cessna aircraft. It is the story of Stephanie and Christian Nielson a young, vibrant and in-love couple and a plane crash on August 16, 2008 where they were both critically burned-sweet Stephanie over 80% of her body. They were both in medically induced comas for months while Christian and "Nie Nie's" 4 kids age 6 and under have been cared for by Nie's sister Courtney since the accident. Nie Nie and Courtney's blogs were both VERY POPULAR before the crash as they are very talented writers. The blogging community has come out since the crash to raise more than $250,000 for the couples hospital bills.

Both blogs are inspiring and their story is a real story of love, courage, compassion, family, loyalty, faith and suffering. You will be thankful you read their beautiful story.
