Amy Brooks, born without arms and legs lives out her divine purpose from God despite rejection from her biological parents. Today, she is an inspiration to the world with her powerful testimony.
Amy Brooks was born with an extremely rare condition called tetraphocomelia. For this same reason, she didn’t have arms or legs as a baby. Sadly, her birth mother couldn’t accept her daughter’s condition. However, despite Dr. Michael Alexander trying to convince her to keep the baby, she decided to abandon Amy.
The poor baby’s parents left her at the hospital and asked the staff if they could “put her in a room and not feed her.”
But, God had greater plans for Amy. Even when her biological parents rejected her, God was always there taking care of her. God brought Amy to a loving Christian home who adopted her and brought her up as their own. Janet Brooks and her family taught her everything she knows and, more importantly, never to say “I can’t,” but instead “I’ll try.”
With her little arms, Amy can do a lot of things people without a disability would do. She does her own makeup and even eats her food without help from anyone. She believes that “attitude determines altitude.”
Furthermore, she added that “God doesn’t make mistakes” and believes that she was born with a holy and divine purpose. She says that “something happens when we stop acting like a victim and start showing up to offer God what we are.” Her life verse is Psalm 139:14, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well.”
Indeed, God is so faithful to fulfill His purposes through Amy’s life as she inspires the world with her moving story. Today, she is an author and a motivational speaker.
Amy Brooks is a joyful and faithful Christian whose vision is to glorify Christ in her life. She wants to testify to the world of God’s saving grace, and inspire and encourage those who already know Him.
To God be the glory for Amy’s life!
