Christine, 16, felt like a queen! It's hard to feel that way when you're in foster care, but it happened for Christine. She had a dream to meet the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, and the Dallas Cowboys made it happen.
Four years in foster care and 16-year-old Christine never imagined this special moment. She got to learn how to be a cheerleader from the very best.
"Let's Go Cowboys!" she chants.
America's Sweethearts found out Christine is a big fan of theirs, and they wanted her to know the feeling is mutual, so they invited her to the STAR in Frisco. "I'm so excited," Christine said.
Christine enjoys meeting new people. She's confident, yet she doesn't like to brag about herself, so we asked her what others say about her.
"They tell me that I am very intelligent, and that I have a very good vocabulary. The way I speak is very fluid," she said.
Christine does very well in school and has a lot of friends. Her favorite buddies, though, are animals. They have a calming effect she cherishes.
"In every foster home, animals have really been there for me." she said. "Like they sense whenever you're sad and stuff. They're normally there for you."
The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders were also there for Christine. They brought her gifts, taught her some new moves and just listened. Christine couldn't believe they gave her a pair of their signature white Lucchese boots.
"Yay," she screamed covering her face in excitement.
In addition to a spirit of gratitude, Christine in goal-oriented. She is determined to continue her biological family's military tradition.
"After college I want to go to the military and the branch I want to do is the Army because I want to be an officer in the Army," she said.
But before she serves her country, Christine needs a family with a heart to serve children. She wants parents who accept her for who she is and make her feel like she belongs.
