Gabriella is 15 years old, she likes cheerleading and gymnastics. She is ambitious and wants to help other teenagers when she grows up. Gabriella is hoping she will find a special family this week on Wednesday's Child.
Gabriella says 15 year old Kelley is one of her best friends. They were happy to have some time to skate and talk about their lives in foster care.
"Ever since I was 4 or 5. It's not that difficult no more because I got over it and people 's situations could be worse than mine", Gabriella said.
Gabby is a girly girl. She likes getting her hair done and makeup. She has started using lip gloss, she calls it her diva gloss.
"I'm fun and caring. I like to go and get my nails done and hang out with friends", said Gabby.
Gabriella says she wants to go to college and hopefully use her career to help other children who don't have permanent families.
"I want to be a lawyer. And why did you choose law? Because I want to be able to help kids that have been in my situation", Gabriella said.
Gabby has big names on her list of colleges.
"I want to major in law and I want to go to either Harvard, Ole Miss, Princeton or Yale", said Gabriella.
Gabriella wants to be adopted.
"Yes I want to be adopted so I have a stable placement and a loving family", Gabriella said.
She is hoping for a devoted parent or parents who will believe in her and her potential.
"Loving, caring and fun", said Gabby.
Gabriella has two younger sisters. She says if she was granted one wish it would be..
"To be able to see my sisters before I turn 18", Gabriella said.
Gabby's favorite subject is math, she says her life has been filled with subtraction. She is now waiting to add a mom and dad.
