No Limits
By Mary Lynn Bushong

1     If you had a dream, could anything stop you from trying to reach it? When Chris Hartwick was born on February 6, 1969, he had a problem. It was called arthrogryposis multiplex congenita. It can affect any of the muscles in the body. In Chris, it kept the muscles in his arms and chest from developing.
2     From the time he was very young, Chris showed great artistic talent. While you might hold a pencil or paintbrush in your hand, Chris used his mouth. As he grew up, people constantly asked him if he was going to be an artist. At first, he didn't think he would, but when he went to college, he decided to major in graphic design.
3     When he was in his teens, Chris was often discouraged with the things he could not do. He couldn't drive a car or play sports like baseball or basketball. Then, through his faith, he realized that there were many things that he could do, and the only limits were the ones he put on himself.
