A child who is never adopted is "emancipated" at age 18. This week's Wednesday's Child is only three years from that, but still very much wants a family of her own.

Ollie was not quite sure what to make of our exclusive invitation into the inner sanctum of the Vegas Grand Prix. Luckily, our host -- the only female driver, Katherine Legge -- was very gracious and made Ollie feel right at home, even inviting her to sit in the cockpit of her car.

"Melody is at that age where she's a pre-adolescent. She's very peer conscious. But otherwise, she's very intelligent. Also, she's very cautious and she's wise beyond her years," said their caseworker.

"She's spirited, curious, intelligent, and lovable -- very lovable," continued her caseworker.

Both Ollie and her sister desire a home and a family that can give them the stability they've never really had.

"I think a structured home, consistency, a lot of love and nurturing, a place where they can be creative and open," said their caseworker. Ollie "wants a foundation. She just wants to belong."

If you're interested, call the local office of the Adoption Exchange at 436-6335.

As always, thanks to our Community Pride partners for supporting Wednesday's Child.
