Please show your support to the Freeman family as they fight to keep their adopted son!

In January of 2011, we first learned about Logan. Friends of ours were staying with us and they received a phone call from their young 17 year old daughter who was 23 weeks pregnant. She had decided that she no longer wanted to keep the baby and wanted them to give her permission to abort the baby. In Texas you can have an abortion up until the 25th week of pregnancy! Of course they said "no". She then said that she was going to see an attorney about getting a judicial bypass so that she could legally have it done without the permission of her parents. We all desperately tried to convince her not to do this. Her Dad and step-mom asked her if they could adopt the baby and she said that she would but she didn't want the baby to be that close to her. Naturally, we offered to adopt him since we were already considering having another baby. We had discussed adoption with our pastor but didn't have any idea of how to go about it. So, she agreed and the process began!

After doing TONS of research to find an agency and an attorney, we finally settled on who we were going to use. The mounds of paperwork started coming in and after a couple of months we were finally ready for Logan to join us!! His birth mother came to stay with us for the last month of her pregnancy so she could see what kind of people we were and just how excited we were to have him!

So, after 4 weeks of her being here she went into labor.......a very LONG labor! She did amazing and on May 20, 2011 we welcomed 8lb. 2oz. Logan Keith into our family with open arms and a lot of teary eyes! We were instantly in love with this beautiful little boy that God brought to us! The whole experience is something I will treasure forever!

Looking back, we see how God had a hand in everything and it all played out just how He had planned. From the timing of her first phone call, to us taking this bundle of joy home from the hospital. I truly believe that Logan is meant to be with us and we pray that we can keep it that way!

After having Logan for the last 5 months, we got the phone call we NEVER thought we would get. Logan's potential father, who told the birth mother he wanted nothing to do with the baby, called. Our attorney had FINALLY found a legit address for him....his fathers house. Apparently he had kept everything from his parents and now that they know about Logan they want him to have Logan and raise him. We refuse to let this happen! Logan is our son and he has been with us since birth. He has a good life here! We intend to fight this with everything we have but we need your help. We will do anything to keep our son home with us! That's why we created this page. If you can find it in your heart to help us, we would greatly appreciate it! The money donated will be used to pay attorney and court fees.

If you are not able to donate please pray for us! We need your support and prayers to keep Logan home with us and to help us stay strong through all of this! We know God is good and the power of prayer is something that cannot be defeated!
