Nie Nie and her family...



I made sure I recorded the Today Show this morning so I wouldn't miss Nie Nie's family. You can see it here if you missed it.
This blog is written by her sister Courtney, who is taking care of 3 of Nie Nie's and Christian's children along with her own newborn. Their 4th child is with the sister here is this clip...she looks so much like Nie Nie.

If you haven't heard about the accident or seen her blog here it is. Nie was burned over 83% of her body in a private plane crash. Christian over 30%. It is now a story of survival, courage, family, community, love and much more.

I first learned about Nie Nie and her sweet blog from my daughter Melissa. Through blogging we have all become connected, it's real and it's awesome!! So far bloggers have banned together and been able to donate $100,000+ for their care. It will take millions. Plus prayers...lot's of them...they say they feel our prayers....thank you Lord for that!

Hi Maree,
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. It's nice to hear from other women who desire to share the same things. I didn't realize how many blogs had Stephanie and Christian's story on it. I found it and just felt led to blog about them. Congratulations on your weight loss. I lost 40 pounds a year ago on WW but unfortunately 20 of them have found their way back. I am working on getting them off again, via eating healthy and starting to walk. I am adding you to my favs.

Hugs,
LeAnn:)
