Jennifer Bricker always wanted to learn more about her biological family. Born without legs, Bricker was given up for adoption by Romanian immigrants in Illinois. Fortunately, Bricker was taken in by a couple who taught her there was nothing she couldn't do. When she sought inspiration, she'd look to her idol, Dominique Moceanu, who won gold as part of the 1996 U.S. Olympic women's team. But little did Bricker know her connection to Moceanu ran deeper than mere admiration.
