PAGE 15
When Dana was about five and a half months pregnant, she bought a journal for Charles to use to record notes for Jordan. "He became consumed with it," Dana says. "The journal is over 200 pages, and in it Charles writes everything from the power of prayer to his favorite foods."

Dana says the journal provides Jordan with a father figure of sorts. "This book is a conversation with his dad," she says. "When he gets his heart broken, he'll be able to hear from him about that. Whatever he needs, I'm hopeful that he'll be able to find it in here in his dad's voice."
