Angelo Laws, 9, is close to his grandmother Irene Bohn. Though not biologically related, Angelo and his brother, Charles, refer to Bohn as one of their grandparents. The brothers live in Rantoul, Illinois with their adoptive mother Jeanette Laws. She met the boys as infants born to a drug-addicted mother, and formally adopted them after several years of living together as a foster family.
