Our son, Sergei, struggled with depression, anxiety and PTSD stemming from his tumultuous childhood in Russia before we adopted him in 2009. He fought so hard against his illness and made progress so many times, but ultimately took his own life on Sept. 25. We are proud of his valiant efforts and honor his memory by seeking to make a difference for others.
