Born without arms or legs and abandoned by her birth parents, Amy Brooks is an amazing story of faith, hope, and accomplishment. 

Brooks’ family friend, Karen remarked:

“The old saying goes, ‘when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.’ This does not apply to Amy; her story is more like ‘when life hands you lemons, make grape juice and sit back and watch the world ask how you did it.’ I am lucky I know Amy and her family for as far back as I can remember but not well enough to have known the intimate details shared in this story. Certain parts I cried, others I laughed until I cried. Amy takes us through the journey of her life and allows us to see a very private side of this humble, beautiful, intelligent angel sent from heaven to bless all who encounter her. I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart, this is one of the most heartwarming stories you will ever read.” 

Amy Brooks is a joyful, exuberant, faithful Christian whose vision is to glorify Jesus Christ by testifying to the unbeliever of His saving grace and by bringing encouragement to those who already know Him. Her writing honors her adoptive family and their unconditional love for her. 

Jeff Ferris began pursuing a biographical career in August 2006, at the age of forty-four. This is his third published book and second with Amy Brooks. Jeff is a contributing writer for Pathway Christian Newspaper, a print publication in Toledo, Ohio that can also be read online at
