prayers for Nie Nie

I was so heart-broken to hear today about Stephanie and her husband Christian Nielsen's plane crash in Arizona this past weekend. Her blog, Nie Nie Dialogues, has been a favorite stop of mine since I discovered it and even though I have never met her or spoken with her I feel like I know her and her beautiful family. I will be praying for her and Mr. Nielsen and their children. If anyone hears of anything we in blog-land can do, pass it along...

I had heard of this blog once before...about two weeks ago, maybe. I have seen so many people post about it today! It seems like the best place to keep updated is at her sister's blog: c jane.

Oh, that is so terrible. I hope they will recover quickly.

Thank you for directing my thoughts to Nie Nie and her sister. It's great to support each other in this way I think and I will keep Nie Nie and Christian in my prayers.

Two donation accounts have been set up. As you can imagine, their recovery will be costly (well into the millions). You can donate by:

Visiting a Bank of America and donating to the "Christian and Stephanie Nielson Rehab Fund."

Or,

Visiting a Wells Fargo and donating to the "Stephanie Nielson Fund."

We will be setting up an online ability to donate, probably later today.

Although, visiting is highly restricted right now (only family members) we can post cards, pictures and well-wishes in their rooms (two separate rooms). Of course, they are heavily sedated at this time, but will make these hospital rooms Nie worthy regardless!

Send cards, pictures, etc. to:

c/o Stephanie and Christian Nielson
Maricopa County Hospital
2601 East Roosevelt Street
Phoenix, AZ 85008

Some of you may know that Steph and Christian have a family tradition of writing wishes on helium balloons to release them in the air (see:here.) On Saturday, we'd like to invite people anywhere, everywhere to write thoughts of faith and hope to be released at the same time. (Nie is going to love this!) Lets do 5:00 AZ time (6:00 MST/7:00/Central/8:00/Eastern). Will you all take pictures of the release where you are and e-mail me so we can post them on Monday?
