Through the blogging community, I've learned about a young family in need. My thoughts keep returning to them.
The young couple in this photograph (Christian and Stephanie Nielson) were involved in a plane crash eleven days ago, and are in serious condition in a burn center. The pilot of the plane died. Stephanie and Christian have four small children. Several members of the blog community have set up sites to help them with the cost of care. You can read about the accident News report here.

If you are interested in learning about ways in which you can help, you can visit these sites.

Stephanie's sister has set up an Etsy shop and on Sept. 23-24th, there will be several items for sale, all donated items, and the proceeds will be going directly to this family. A blog friend and artist I admire will be making a special doll for the benefit.

Please consider visiting the sites to see if there is a way you can help this young family.
