      Cheyenne Lee Breedlove was about a week old when someone gave her a pool
      cue.

      If that sounds like a strange baby present, consider the fact that she's
      the adopted daughter of internationally known billiards champion
      Jeanette Lee and her husband, George Breedlove.

      They welcomed the 7-pound 6-ounce baby into their lives just days after
      her birth June 11 in Indianapolis.

      Lee, known as the Black Widow for her determination and competitive
      style, is anything but that when it comes to motherhood. She coos and
      sings to the baby, insists there's no way to spoil an infant and speaks
      with gratitude for the young mother who decided to give up her child for
      adoption.

      Lee said she's been trying to have a child for years. The couple tried
      fertility specialists. Then, after a miscarriage last year, she thought
      her health problems resulting from scoliosis might prevent her from
      giving birth. Right before the couple filed papers to adopt a baby
      overseas, Lee met Cheyenne's mom at a party for a mutual friend.

      Like herself, the birth mother is a Korean-American, and the baby's
      father, like Lee's husband, is white. Even though they met only days
      before the baby was born, everything clicked.

      Lee's career is on hold temporarily as she takes three months off to
      settle in to her new role as a mom. That doesn't mean Lee isn't
      maintaining a training schedule; she's been known to practice 60 hours a
      week. A baby sitter will watch the baby to allow Lee three uninterrupted
      hours at the table daily. The rest of her training will be worked around
      her baby's schedule.

      Lee's career.
