    I can't even begin to express how much Amy's performance affected me.

    Just like when Marlee was on, I was moved and touched beyond belief.

    I am SO looking forward to seeing more of her.

    WHAT AN INSPIRATION!!

    Wow, this girl has really overcome all odds. I was a sobbing mess after her interview before the dance. She did an amazing job and Derek choreographed a beautiful heartfelt dance

    Those "en pointe" prosthetics are amazing. (From a practical standpoint, I can't imagine that "real people" insurance would cover them but still, it's great that they exist.)
    I can only imagine how much work Amy had to do off-camera the stuff we didn't see to get used to a different center of gravity with these.

    She said she felt very girly being able to point her toes. I take so much for granted.

    Yeah, we all do which is probably why we so admire Amy.

    I'm trying to understand why she has prostheses that have her remain on her toes. Seems like the engineers could invent something that go from toes to other positions. They only seem to be limited by their imaginations.

    I believe those were prosthetics that she doesn't normally wear. They were made specifically to be in that position. I guess they haven't come up with prosthetics yet that can change positions to that extent yet. Either that or they are too expensive for most.
