Chloe wants that slam-dunk feeling of a permanent home

Being part of the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) someday is something this week’s Wednesday’s Child -- Chloe (2002) -- is shooting for, so we wanted to help her get a sense of what some steps towards that goal might be like.

Enter Cheryl Miller, former Olympian and WNBA Coach and current Head Coach for Cal State L.A.’s Women’s Golden Eagles Basketball Team – joined by the Golden Eagles themselves – to give Chloe a glimpse at some of the possibilities college has to offer along life’s path.

The Golden Eagles came out in full force to give Chloe a practice demo and to run drills with her. Chloe handled herself with poise and coordination up and down the court and after just a few minutes Chloe started to appear as a natural fit. Chloe displays charisma and a natural leadership ability that tend to have others gravitate towards her.

Chloe performs well academically and is a kindred spirit with others around a variety of interests. Chloe enjoys reading, listening to music, painting and sketching and also has a love for film. A consummate athlete, in addition to basketball she also enjoys playing soccer, competing on a wrestling team, and playing touch football. Chloe tells us that when she’s on the court/field, she feels the most free to be herself.

Chloe can be cautious around discussing what she wants and needs in a family, but she shared that what’s most important is having people in her life that will stick with her and not give up. Chloe can be sensitive and needs a parent(s) whom she can trust and who will help support her goals, encourage and love her.

Chloe has “first string” potential and will actively engage in building family relationships. We are looking for “lifetime coaches” (aka parents) who would cheer Chloe on as she heals and grows into all that she can become.

Tune in to Wednesday’s Child to see Chloe in action and then call 866-921-ADOPT (2367) to learn more about adoption.
