This story is like something out of a movie.

Jennifer Bricker was born with no legs. Because of her birth defect, it has been reported that her parents abandoned her at the hospital on the day she was born.

Jennifer was eventually adopted by a wonderful couple from a small town in Illinois. Her adoptive parents instilled in her the confidence and strength she needed to live out her dream: to become an athlete and gymnast.

You see, Jennifer’s childhood hero was legendary gymnast Dominique Moceanu. While so many others would have discouraged Jennifer’s dreams of becoming a talented tumbler, her newly adoptive family encouraged her to surpass any and every expectation.

She was on her way to becoming a gymnastics champion at the young age of 7.

But that’s only the beginning of the story. Over the years, Jennifer began to compete and dominate her sport. She even became the tumbling champion in the state of Illinois!

Out of curiosity, Jennifer asked her parents for more information about her biological family. She wanted to know what her last name would have been had she not been abandoned by her birth mom.

The answer she got sent chills down her spine…
