Sometimes...the most fantastic, unbelievable stories turn out to be true. That was the case with our guest, Jen Bricker.
Jen Bricker was born without legs and with her heart on the wrong side of her chest. So naturally she decided to become an athlete - an acrobat to be exact and she made it happen by showing off her tumbling all over the world.
Through it all…her idol and role model, was Dominique Moceanu, who won a Gymnastics Gold Medal for the USA in the 1996 Olympics.
Jen was raised all of her young life by adoptive parents. When she was about 16-years old, she asked about her biological mother and that’s when she was told her last name was Moceanu.
This was a special journey that ended with the discovery that her idol - Dominique Moceanu, was actually her biological sister.
All of this and more is covered in Jen's new book; ‘Everything Is Possible: Finding the Faith and Courage to Follow Your Dreams’.
‘Everything Is Possible: Finding the Faith and Courage to Follow Your Dreams’ is in bookstores everywhere.
