Daisy Dickenson, 10, kneels in the pen with her pig Jimmy on Friday at the Benton Franklin Fair & Rodeo in Kennewick. Dickenson, who was adopted from China five years ago after being abandoned as a baby, is thriving with her adoptive parents Teri and Jim Dickenson of Pasco. It was the first time for the youngster with several birth defects to show an animal at a fair. She plans to use the money from the sale of her pig to support her dream of becoming a pediatrician to help children with special needs. Watch a video at tricityherald.com/video.
