My name is Chloe Leclair and I am 21 years old. I am in a family of 5, with my parents Kathleen and Craig Leclair and my 2 younger brothers, Danny and Mateo. My family is very diverse since my brothers and I are all adopted. My brothers are Hispanic, one from Oaxaca, Mexico and the other from Arizona. I was born in Missouri to my birth/biological mother Katherine. At 3 days old my adoptive parents brought me to my home in the Bay Area. I was raised in Los Gatos and San Jose, CA. where I attended Catholic schools. I am an extremely outdoorsy person, and therefor came to love running, hiking, skiing, and backpacking. I am also creative and enjoy the arts which was shown through my love for painting and ballet dancing. My parents have provided me with many amazing opportunities and I am extremely grateful for the privileges I have in my life.
“Although my birth mother had to make a huge sacrifice by giving me up, she gave me another chance at life to have a wonderful, loving family and so many wonderful opportunities.”
Living in California also has given me a chance to have much great access to the amazing outdoors. It makes me feel at peace, grateful for our planet, and makes me passionate about supporting the environmental movement.
