FaithTap Staff 4/24/2018
By all accounts, the Moceanu family was a close-knit bunch whose time was spent ushering little Dominique to and from gymnastics lessons. Even though Dominique would turn out to be an American Olympian, there was a huge secret her parents kept to themselves.
If anyone knew about this, it would mean the end of life as they knew it. That dark secret came to light after Dominique discovered hidden paperwork deep within her parents' house.
They admitted to giving birth to a little girl named Jennifer 1987 -- but there was another twist in their story. They explained that Jennifer was born without legs and, rather than seek treatment, they put her up for adoption.
Hearing this from her parents was heartbreaking for Dominique. How could her parents do that to an innocent child?
Despite the emotions raging within, she immediately began searching for her little sister. What she discovered was absolutely incredible.
Not only was Jennifer a brilliant young woman with an awesome adoptive family, but she was also interested in gymnastics! Jennifer explained how she refused to let her disability slow her dreams growing up, and how she idolized Dominique before she knew they were related!
It seems as though these sisters had more in common than they could've imagined! Now Dominique and Jennifer chat regularly and see each other when their schedules allow!
