Steele Family Reunion

At the annual 4th of July Family Reunion we all honored Rachel with bright Orange "SteeleStrong" shirts, designed by her two cousins McKell and Josh. It was quite a sight to see all 98 of the attendees dressed in bright orange showing their support for their Granddaughter, niece, and cousin. Below is a video of some of the highlights of the reunion, including a carnival, 5K run, and a volleyball tournament.

    I love the video, Adam! It's been playing on a loop all morning- my kids can't get enough of it. To McKell and Josh - I love the shirts. There's something powerful about the visual representation of everyone getting together to show love for Rachel. To Rachel - Thank's for letting my boys come and visit you in the hospital. They felt very privileged. We love you every day!

  7. Amazing! You have a very loving support system. Hope and pray that you are doing better.

  8. I am so grateful to be Steelestrong! Our family is stronger thanks to you. I'm sure my kids will come make faces outside your window when you are home :) We love you!

  10. Adam, I just barely got around to watching the whole video and it was awesome. Got a little teary eyed. Rachel, even though you weren't at the reunion, you had more of a presence than anyone else. You truly are special.

  11. Tears, tears, and more tears.

    We just love you guys.

    This video was so inspiring I had to share. I put it on my blog to come out next week sometime.
