Derek Loux – Hero for Adoption

We were terribly saddened to learn of the loss of Derek Loux who died from injuries sustained in a car accident earlier today.

My friend Randy Bohlender wrote this, and sums up why Derek is one of my heros –

Derek leaves a beautiful wife, Renee, and ten children, two biological daughters, five girls adopted from the Marshall Islands, and three sons adopted from the Ukraine.   They are quite possibly the most beautiful assembly of human beings I have ever seen.

Derek was a powerful musician, singer and songwriter…but it was his message of adoption that rocked most of us to our core – and then he had the audacity to live out his own message right on front of us, daring us to do the same.

Read the rest of Randy’s powerful post here.

Read the letter sent to the IHOP-KC family about Derek’s death and the legacy he has left.
