Renee Loux

Story #4
Air Date: July 24, 2013

Renee met Derek Loux, the love of her life, on a trip to the Marshall Islands and they married soon after. They later adopted twin girls Teyolla and Keyolla from the Marshall Islands and made it their life mission to rescue, adopt, and restore the lives of orphans.

While attending a conference in Colorado on how to rescue children in sex trade industry, Derek was tragically killed in a car accident. Renee became a single mom of 2 biological and 8 adopted children.

However, Renee does not let being a widow slow her down. She continues to rescue orphans and since Derek’s death she has even adopted more children.

With the $50,000 from “5-hour ENERGY® Helps Amazing People”, Renee wants to build more lofts in her house so she can take in even more orphans in need.

    Renee is amazing. She doesn’t just care for all of these children, she takes the time to encourage everyone she knows who is struggling in this life. So happy you chose her for this blessing!

    Renee is the most amazing person I know and I’ve known her for 30 years. What a beautiful example of Christ’s heart for redemption. She is soooo deserving of this award.

    Renee,
    I have not enough words to express what a powerful and passionate example (in spite of the challenges) you have set for others to try to emulate, so let me just say THANK YOU!

    Where do you live? your story has touched my Heart. I was wondering if there was a way i could help you/? We too take in children and have a house full of kids for many years. the kids we care for are those kids that have been disposed, thrown out of their homes , We encourage education and for them to follow the household rules and become a working member of society. SO I understand what you are going through. I have not lose my husband , but I was diagnosed with 2 very rare diagnosis that make me go to the oncologist and have treatments that leave me useless, exhausted, and fatigued. We do understand loss as we lost out mother our service dog, the cat along with 3 cousins and several friends. it has been a heard year. then we were in 4 car accidents and Dad had a stroke. The stroke was so bad there was no place that wanted to treat him. So we are caring for him now so we have to travel over the state to help care for him. Anyway, what I am saying is I understand, and I was wondering if there is a way we could help?.
