Forever Families: Logan
The Round Rock Express invited foster child, 13-year-old Logan to check out the ball park behind the scenes for a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
Believe it or not, it was the first time Logan ever picked up the bat. But in the practice batting cage, Logan loved hitting the balls in what we anticipate were home runs. His coach for the day, Round Rock Express Pitcher Tyler Wagner.
The locker room talk was all about finding a forever family.
"He can have a team. He can have a home team and can have a forever family where he can engage in those sports," said Logan's adoption caseworker Cathy Hammond.
Out on the field, Logan opens up.
"When you think about being adopted is that scary or exciting?" asked CBS Austin Reporter Lindsay Liepman.
"Exciting." said Logan. "Because you get to meet new people and hopefully they will want you," he said.
"You are so sweet. I know there's a family out there for you. I believe it," said Liepman.
"Logan is the sweetest child ever," said Hammond.
She believes a family is out there for Logan, too. Logan has been in foster care since he was 8 years old.
"You couldn't ask for anything more," Hammond says of Logan's personality.
But she is asking that a family step up to the plate and welcome him home.
"The person who can stand behind him and cheer lead him and know that a bad day is just a bad day. It's not forever. Someone who is going to love him and cherish him and stick by him," said Hammond.
Logan is featured in The Heart Gallery of Central Texas, a program of Partnerships for Children. You can read his BIO to learn more about adoption. CBS Austin "Forever Families" airs every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m.
