Prayers for an amazing family!

Derek and Renee Loux are adoptive parents of MANY, including 3 little guys through Reece's Rainbow. I have never met them in person, but I've been following their blog for many months now, as they began their journey to bringing the boys home. At the same time they were working on bringing home two girls from the Marshall islands, and later in the summer brought home their biological sister.

This morning, December 23rd, Derek was tragically killed in a car accident. Derek was an amazing man, with a heart for God like no other. Please, lift the family up in prayer today. Derek leaves behind his wife Renee, and their 11 children.

This is heartbreaking. I cried for them this morning. There is a picture of him carrying Sana and one of the other girls, Michela maybe? And the girls faces are just pure joy. He was taken from us way too soon. But at least we know he's in heaven.
