Couple Adopts Five Kids with Cerebral Palsy

Michigan couple Patricia and Richard Logan have taken helpfulness to a whole new level.

Twenty-two years ago, the duo decided to be foster parents to Michelle, an 11-year-old girl who was both blind and had cerebral palsy.

But they didn't stop there.

"We got really attached to Michelle," Patricia told People magazine. "I wanted to give her the best life she could ever have."

That's when they decided to adopt four more kids with cerebral palsy.

"Everyone needs a loving home," Patricia, already a mother to three and a grandmother to six, told People.

The Logans later adopted 16-year-old Jerry, who had cerebral palsy in addition to a neurological disorder called Sturge-Weber syndrome. They also were foster parents to Evan, 31; Jason, 23; and Shana, 29, according to the site.

"It's the best feeling in the world," Richard told People, "giving them a shot."
