Heart Warming Family Story Dec 14, 2007
Before even opening Logan's Journey, the beautiful cover illustration sets the tone for this heart felt book about love and families. It is the story of how Logan came to be with his mommy and daddy, a journey that was a slightly different from that of most little boys but no less magical. Logan's Journey tenderly explains that Logan's mommy and daddy couldn't have a baby by themselves and met his birthmother as a part of God's special plan. It acknowledges his birthmother's love for him and the special role she played in helping complete God's vision for a family of Logan, mommy and daddy. Finally, most importantly, Logan's Journey reminds us that no matter how a family came together, they are all made special by the love that binds them. Heath & Martin do a masterful job of approaching this often difficult subject with the wisdom and compassion that only mothers can have. Ornoff's serene illustrations pair beautifully with the book's comforting message. Logan's Journey is one that every family that has or is considering adoption should take.

This book makes a great gift for all children. It is a celebration of family and in this day and age when families are formed in a myriad of ways, its message is one of hope and comfort to all children. Especially touching is the focus on the partnership of the parents and birthparent to create an adoption plan. The authors provide the perfect starting point to open the discussion with children when they ask "what does it mean to be adopted?" Beautiful illustrations will capture any child's attention. This is a wonderful story to share with your children.
