Logan Hunt was parented by his birth mother until he was a toddler, at which time he was placed for adoption. After some time, his adoption was disrupted and he spent the next 10 years in and out of foster homes. He became a very angry young man who desperately wanted a family.

At age 18, Logan aged out of the system and became homeless, finding shelter in a car. After a story about Logan (whose name at the time was Seth) was aired on WFAA, channel 8 news in Dallas-Fort Worth, a miraculous turn of events occurred.

The Hunt family, who had adopted Seth’s biological sister years earlier, invited him to be in their home. It wasn’t long before the entire family realized they belong together.

Now Logan Hunt, who spent years feeling lonely, is part of a loving family–never to be alone again.
