03 Sep / When a young girl saw an Olympic gymnast on TV, she decided to challenge all odds and become one too
One day a letter arrived for Olympic gymnast Dominique Moceanu. The letter included medical documents and a sincere message from a younger girl who claimed to be her sister. With the proof in her hands, Moceanu called her parents immediately to confirm if Jennifer Bricker was indeed her sister. During the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, Bricker, who was put up for adoption because she would require expensive medical care, began to watch her idol. When Bricker’s parents heard the name Moceanu and saw her parents, they soon realized Dominique was her sister. They recognized the Moceanu name as the result of a clerical error that allowed them to view her birth name years ago. They kept the information secret until Bricker’s 16th birthday … she then waited four years after that to come forward to her sister. The synchronicity of their lives is astounding!
