heartfelt story

This is a story I have been following for a few months. I came across it somewhere in blog world, but the story has been on national news programs as well. This beautiful woman, Stephanie, and her husband were in a horrific plane crash back in August. Stephanie, aka Nie Nie, had apparently become somewhat of a celebrity in blog world for her positive attitude and creative spin on parenting, and many other things. She was badly burned from the crash and was in a coma for months. I am not sure of all the specifics, but she is apparently home now and has started blogging again. In just the most recent posts she is telling a little of what she is going through now on a daily basis with her recovery and rehab. I don't know if it's because of my background in rehab or just that it's truly of human interest, but I find it heartbreaking but at the same time uplifting to actually hear her display her heart on this matter. I have prayed for her and her family many times over the last few months, and I truly wish her the best. It is a miracle she is alive. Here is her blog: (I have to learn how to do that thing where you replace the web address with a word that you can click on..... I still have so much to learn with computers.....)

Wow! What a journey she is on! I wasn't aware of her - thanks for sharing this with us!

FYI - highlight the word you want to link and at the top of the typing "window" you will see a button that has a world with a chain link on top of it. Click on it and you can type/paste the web address in it. Viola! You linked to a page through a word! Clear as mud??!!!??? :-)
