Kelly Rutherford's love for her kids couldn't be stronger!
On Thursday, just hours before Kel attends a MAJOR custody hearing in Monaco, she posted a few adorable snaps commemorating her two children on Instagram. So precious AND heartbreaking!

The intimate pics highlight just how important the September 3 hearing is for the actress — today a judge will decide whether or not Hermes and Helena will be sent back to America. Rutherford's legal team is banking on her excellent mothering kills and the fact that the kids were born in the United States.
Unfortunately, the Gossip Girl star's ex, Daniel Girsch, claims it's in the best interest of the kids to live with him in Monaco. Tensions between the ex couple heated up when the momma refused to return her babies to the country after an extended NYC visit that ended in July.
Hopefully these sweet pics are a good luck charm for Kelly today — check out the bittersweet cuteness (below)!

Aw — how adorable are these shots?! We especially love Helena's request for "i-shadow"…so darling.
All we can say is we hope a judge rules in Kel's favor. Good news is her lawyer is feeling confident about the situation, saying:
"Kelly trusts her Monaco legal team and feels that the Monaco judge treated her with respect when she was there last June. She believes the judge will again treat her with respect. Kelly is praying that the judge in Monaco does the right thing on Sept. 3, and sends the children home to America."
We'll keep you updated as the situation progresses.
