A fellow adoptive mama emailed me recently to share some heartbreaking news, and a request to lift this grieving family in prayer. Carrie, a close friend of hers, had returned from China only 7 months ago with her daughter, Meri-Jain (MJ). On October 24, MJ slipped and fell. Her injuries proved to be fatal and she passed away last Sunday. She was only 7 years old. Darlene has written more on her blog about MJ and her family.
