Nie Nie

I recently added a "button" to the sidebar on the blog that links to another blog called "The Nie Nie Dialogues". Stephanie, the original blogger, and her husband were critically injured in a plane crash earlier this fall. The third passenger in the plane died. Stephanie has burns on over 80% of her body and her husband, over 30%. They have 4 children, 3 of which are with one sister and the youngest is with another while the couple gains strength.

Lots of options for donating and spreading the word on this tragedy and the hope and love resulting from it.

The site includes snippets from Stephanie's blog, her positive attitude toward life and mothering, and the importance of family. Her sister keeps the blog alive by re-publishing her favorite posts from the past.

This immediately touched my heart because of my love of sisterhood and the signifigance of it in my life. Nothing stronger in the world than the support a sister can provide.

Visit Nie Nie and her beautifully designed blog. See her story here, as told by The Today Show.

I have been following this family's story. Her sister's blog ,, constantly gives updates. I am so moved by their courage and the way the family has pulled together. The kids are adorable!
