Big Christmas: Local couple adopts 7 boys from 2 families into their family

PAULDING COUNTY, Ga. — It’s a special Christmas for one metro Atlanta family.

A Paulding County couple are now the proud parents of seven children after adopting all of them.

For the Logan family, Christmas is bigger than ever.

“Every year I pray and ask God for a child,” said Candice Logan.

And their prayers were answered – many, many times.

“Then it was like, here’s my sense of humor and he brought me within a year, seven,” Candice Logan said.

Seven boys. All of them foster kids.

“They had been neglected somewhat, which is why they were taken,” said father Larry Logan.

There’s one set of four brothers, another set of three brothers. And all of them are cousins.

They range in age from 3 to 10.

“I remember telling her, ‘I don’t know how this is going to play out if we’re going to get to adopt these kids or not,’” Larry Logans said.

The answer was yes.

Just in the past few months, the Logans completed adopting all seven boys.


“I feel like they changed our lives as much as we changed theirs,” Candice Logan said.

Their Paulding County house is a little louder and a little rowdier.

“We have holes in the walls and our house has been destroyed. He’s good at patching holes. Time and time again,” Candice Logan said.

The Logan family still hope to have several kids of their own as well.

But on this night before Christmas, the family couldn’t be more thankful for their seven special gifts.

“We wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world. Nothing," Larry Logan said.

Relatives have set up a GoFundMe page to help cover the costs of buying a new van to help with their now-expanded family. You can find it
