John and I sat with our children last night and I read your many comments and blog posts sharing your love for our family and the impact Derek had on all of your lives. Every word was like a gift. Thank you.
Today Renee has asked me to reach out to you for help with a memorial for Derek. If you or someone you know has been touched by Derek’s message and has been spurred on to adopt, we would love to have a photo of your child at Derek’s memorial service.
I am asking that you email me a high quality image to my email at email@example.com. I will then have the photographs printed into 8×10’s and framed for a display at Derek’s memorial. Please include your names, your city, state, and a very short statement on how Derek’s life impacted your adoption.
Anyone wanting to contribute to the cost of framing and printing the photos can email me as well.
Thank you so very much on behalf of the entire family,
Derek with our precious Aiden in Ukraine. This little miracle boy would not be in our home were it not for Derek’s passion and pursuit of the Father’s heart for orphans. What a legacy this precious brother of mine has left behind.
