Meet Amy Brooks: Woman born without limbs who can still do anything

Amy Brooks from Pittsburgh, U.S. , who was born with Congenital Tetraphocomelia, a birth defect that affects all four limbs, hasn't let her disability affect her life.

Meet Amy Brooks: Woman born without limbs who can still do anything

Although born with no limbs, the 37-year-old proved that she could still do anything, such as cooking, writing, photographing, and even sewing, but only in a different way.

She was abandoned by her biological parents shortly after birth, and they even went as far as to ask hospital staff to put her in a room and not feed her. Fortunately, she was later adopted by the loving Brooks family.

Can you imagine being born without arms or legs? What would be the quality of your life? How would you cope? What would your attitude or personality be like? How about the depth of your humor, the level of your faith, or your compassion for others?

Meet Amy Brooks: Woman born without limbs who can still do anything

Amy was born with an extremely rare condition called Tetraphocomelia--having no arms or legs. She was then left abandoned at the hospital by her birth parents where the staff was asked if they could "put her in a room and not feed her."

In her inspiring, humorous, and uplifting 2-part autobiography, Amy takes you on an amazing journey as she shares her life story and her enviable faith. All throughout, she will make you laugh. She will also make you cry a little. Most importantly, Amy will challenge and inspire you in a way that promises to change your life forever!

Some of Amy's earliest memories are the times she spent with her sister, painting those little houses that go under your tree, or on your mantles at Christmas time. And the puff paint shirts in the '80's!

As she grew into her teen years she started to draw and once she graduated high school, she picked up a technique called 'Paper Tole'.

In the summer of 2014, Amy began an internship at Steel Gate Studio under the mentorship of Alex Jones. There she has been learning software such as Photoshop, CaptureOne and PhotoMechanic. Using the software she has begun to grow in editing skills as well as taking care of some productions.

All of the work you see on this site was created by either holding tools in Amy's mouth or between her chin and shoulder. Amy believes that, though she may not have the talent of Picasso or Norman Rockwell, the talent she has was God-given. She says she loves creating art to show that, "If God can use me, He can use ANYONE!".

Man Gets His Racist Tattoos Removed After Becoming A Dad

Bryon Widner by name, became a skinhead at the age of 14, and he spent 16 years involved with racist organizations in the midwest. He earned the nickname of “pit bull”, and went on to co-found Vinlanders Social Club, a white power group in Indiana.

Vinlanders soon gained a reputation for excessive violence and became one of the fastest-growing racist skinhead organizations in the US.

In 2005, Widner married Julie Larsen and a year later, the couple had a son. The responsibilities of fatherhood gave Widner the desire to reform and leave the racist movement, a desire shared by his new wife.

Widner took the decision to leave the neo-nazi group, but it took years of death threats and harassment before he felt that he was finally becoming “human again.”

Widner’s attempts to become part of regular society were understandably made more difficult by his many facial tattoos, which were both intimidating and openly racist. His wife Julie was afraid that he would do something extreme to erase hi…

Man Stops Drinking Alcohol, Narrates How Much Sobriety Changed Him In 3 Years

Giving up your vices and guilty pleasures can lead to a happier and healthier life that’s full of purpose. Even though you might not see the changes day-to-day when you give up drinking alcohol, they’re very apparent to others. One of the things that can keep you motivated is documenting the changes and looking at the photos side by side.

Well, one man has made the phrase ‘one day at a time’ fit both his fight with alcoholism and documenting his journey through sobriety. These last three years, Kenny D. has taken snaps of how he looked when he quit alcohol at key stages in his journey of sobriety. The changes within the first month are already huge and he is almost unrecognizable in the final pictures.

Kenny went sober three years ago. When he took his first photo, he was feeling awful.

“I took a picture of myself the day I got my first sobriety coin, 24 hours sober. I felt so ill and I looked so bad, I wanted to remember it so I wouldn’t forget. The day I got my 30-day coin, I though…

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA

Why Does Canada Feel more Developed Than The USA a question asked by a Quora Community User: The question goes like this:

"If USA is wealthier than Canada, why does Canada feel more developed (far cleaner cities, a lot less crime, fewer homeless people, significantly higher life expectancy)?"

Kelly Meilleur Has the best answer:

Dual citizen here (CDN/USA).

I will try to explain Canada.

There is an entirely different sense of right and wrong in Canada. Canadians are democratic. (Not just a democracy; there’s a difference.)

That means they are happy to pay taxes - big taxes - so that they have the resources they need in their neighbourhoods. They don’t need to earn big money to be able to afford a house in a good school district or private school tuition in order to ensure a good k-12 foundation for their kids.

Their children do not need to take on hundreds of thousands of dollars of debt for an undergraduate or professional degree at a good school. Some Americans think that th…
