Addie has a big heart for animals. Her aspiration when she grows up is to become a Veterinarian, and have her own horse therapy/rescue farm.

Sharing the Gospel is something  she is passionate about, and loves to share the love of Jesus with everyone. She is so friendly, loyal and affectionate.  She has faith that moves mountains, and gives the best hugs.





Dorothy Mae “Mae Mae” Lawson

Dorothy Mae, age 4, has a wild and free kind of spirit. She’s a little accident prone, having made more trips to the E.R. than her years of life. She enjoys having her picture taken by strangers, and pretends she can understand them when they speak Thai.

Curiosity is her main foe, always helping her into trouble, but she’s quick to learn life’s lessons and try better next time. Her planned occupation is “Ice Queen.” It’s impossible not to fall in love with her when you look into her big blue eyes.

Frances “Frannie” Lawson

Frances, by definition of her name  means ‘free one,’ and that she is. She makes her presence known, whether by shrill and shriek or smiles and laughter.  She loves spicy food, and being tickled.

She was born in Thailand, and will soon be turning two. Her first word was Thai. It’s hard not to kiss her chubby cheeks.
