Gymnast Born Without Legs Learns Her Childhood Hero Is Her… NO WAY!

Children often have big dreams, things that they wish more than anything in the world to accomplish. Sadly, many adults tell children that they can't reach those dreams -- whether it be for financial, practical, or logistical reasons.

But what would happen if a child had never heard the word "can't?"

The word "can't" was exactly what was missing from this woman's childhood. Despite her situation, her adoptive parents never told her that her dream was unreachable. Once you find out what she's achieved with what she has, you're going to think twice about ever telling a child they can't do something they set their minds to -- and the twist at the end of this story will make your jaw drop.
