Very often you can see how people complain about their lives, but they do not even realize how hard it can be for others. And these others, despite all the difficulties, overcome them and achieve unprecedented heights. The girl Jennifer Bricker is one of the few examples of such people. She was born without legs, so it was an incredible shock for her parents.
Not knowing what to do, they abandoned their little Jenny. But, fortunately, for another family, her illness was not such a big problem. Therefore, a couple from Illinois adopted a girl and were not afraid of the forecasts of doctors who said that Jennifer might not even be able to sit without someone’s help
Her new parents Sharon and Gerald did not see Jenny as a person with limitations, they raised her the way they would raise a normal child. But they did not forget about her illness and were looking for specialists who could help their daughter. Sharon and Gerald wanted to make prosthetic legs for her, but after failing to get used to them, Jennifer gave them up.
lit probably helped the girl a lot that her new dad and mom never focused on the fact that Jenny had no legs, and she grew up self-confident and even learned to move on her hands and even on her hips. How active Jennifer was as a child is indescribable and often played outdoor games with friends, including basketball and volleyball.
After some time, Jenny became interested in aerial gymnastics. She really liked the performances of the Olympic champion Dominica Mochan and over time she became the girl’s idol. She literally admired what the gymnast was doing and at home Jennifer even began to repeat her movements after her, gradually learning them. Parents supported the desire of their daughter, and she began to do aerial gymnastios.
And already at the age of 10, Jennifer participated in the Youth Olympics, and at the age of 11 she eventually became the state champion. She wasn’t going to stop there. Dominica Mochanu motivated her to new achievements, and Jen felt as if there was some kind of connection between them.
The parents later made an unthinkable statement. Jennifer’s real name is Mochanu, and Dominica is her sister. After that, Jen contacted her and after a short time became very close to each other.
The girls are Romanian by nationality, and their parents are Romanian immigrants who fled to America in search of a better life. Interestingly, they were also aerialists in their homeland. Jen’s adoptive parents told her not to be angry at her biological parents, because you can’t know exactly what happened to them.
Since the sisters reunited, Jennifer has become an incredibly successful gymnast, running her own YouTube channel, giving lectures and performances around the world. Dominica is incredibly proud of her little sister, Jen got married in 2019 and has been happily living with her partner ever since.
Jennifer Bricker is an example for many people, who proves that there are no limits in achieving your goals!
