I found a blog a few months ago from this cute mom, Stephanie. I also read her sisters blog, C Jane. I enjoyed both of their blogs because they are upbeat moms, and are members of the same church as I am, just in another state. We have similar views on life and family. I then found out about a plane crash with Stephanie and her husband (they survived but in critical condition in the burn unit), and I’ve been checking C Jane’s blog every day for updates and her insights and perspective. Their story has circulated the blogoshere, but I wanted to share with my readers in case they didn’t know, or just to show my support.
I did not take this picture, but wanted to post it to share this story. The New York Times picked up the story, and I enjoyed the article.

I really wanted to participate in an Auction to raise money for their care, but I’m not sure if I have a big enough blog readership in my area to make a difference. If you are interested in bidding on a portrait session in Austin respond in the comments area (with your bid). I’ll do a full portrait session with the CD of all images, rights signed over to you (I don’t normally give out the disc of images unless my largest collection is purchased–over $1400) weddings excluded. Bidding starts at $200 (and please go in increments of $50) and will end next Monday the 15th at midnight. All proceeds will be paid directly to the Nie Nie Recovery fund, and after a receipt is sent to me to verify you paid the fund, we will have our portrait session. That means 100% of what you pay will go towards the Recovery AND you get a portrait session with disc. And, your heart will feel warm knowing you are helping this family.
