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?
