About-

You know how blood families grow. You also know how adoption works. The Velcro Family method may be new to you. The biological Lawson family started quite small, when Roy and Joy fell in love, married, and brought three babies into their family. It’s still not very big: two living daughters, three grandsons, and one great-granddaughter. But when the whole tribe gets together for their annual week-long all-family vacation, anywhere from thirty to seventy will be there—the parents (Roy and Joy), the children’s generation (seventeen), grandchildren’s (twenty-three), great-grandchildren’s (twenty-seven), and great-great grandchildren’s (two). Velcro Families: They Stick! tells the tales of how all these people found love and belonging. And why they still stick. For one thing, each one had to pass the entrance requirement: you can’t get into the Lawson family if you come from a functional one.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“For years Roy and Joy Lawson have regaled friends with tales of their Velcro Families. Now Roy skillfully weaves together the best tidbits in a delightful series of narratives, many from the Velcros themselves. What a pleasure it is to see how this self-described collection of ‘dysfunctional strays’ came to be joined together by Christlike love into a family, where tears, affection, teasing, and joy flow together in a captivating river of life!”

—Jack Knowles, The George and Janet Arnold Chair Emeritus of Humanities, Milligan University



“I have never before witnessed anyone pour more of themselves into others than Roy has. This book will inspire you in ways you’ve never before imagined. While you might not be a part of his ‘Velcro Family,’ you will indeed be challenged to start your own. And everyone you include will benefit greatly.”

—Cal Jernigan, Lead Pastor, Central Christian Church, Arizona
