"Good Morning America" viewers from across the country logged on in record-setting numbers to cast 16,000 votes for the 14-month-old baby from Erie, Pa.

Babytalk Editor-in-Chief Ana Connery revealed the November cover live on "GMA" and Rowan and his parents, Mia and Adrian Spracklen, were on the set in Times Square when they learned Rowan was the winner.

Rowan had a "personality like no other kid we saw," Connery said.
November is National Adoption Month, something that has a special meaning for the Spracklen family, who adopted Rowan from Ethiopia in January when he was six months old.

Baby Rowan was abandoned at a police station and sent to an orphanage. Although the orphanage took care of him as well as they could, his parents said that he was malnourished and sick.

Despite this, Rowan has adjusted well to his new surroundings. His family calls him a miracle and a survivor.

"We're really lucky," Adrain Spracklen said on "GMA."

Rowan has three older sisters, Henley, 10, Teagan, 8 and Luca, 6, who he loves to play with outside.

Rowan's mother decided to enter the contest because she says whenever they are in public people always stop to admire him.
