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.
I am friend of Carrie Kreuer. I would like for you to pass along the info, if you wish, for prayers needed for her and her family.
Her 7 yr old daugher, MJ, had an accident on Friday and passed away on Sunday evening. This is a very difficult time for the family, as MJ was adopted in the spring and has only been home for about 7 months.
There is an MJ Kreuer Memorial Fund set up thru her church and their is an online guest book for people to sign to send words of encouragement.
I will absolutely lift this family up in prayer. So heartbreaking…words fail me.

these situations are extra heart struggling. for some reason, you feel “exempt” from such tradgedies when you adopt and have had to go to the ends of the earth for your child. obviously, i know that is not true, but things like this shocks my heart back into reality.
I will definitely keep this family in my prayers.
Just so heartbreaking, Stefanie. Thanks for sharing so we can pray for this family.
I’ll so sorry to read this. I’ll be praying for this family.
