Amy suffered from self-hatred low self-esteem. She tried to embrace her Islam faith, but she felt no hope in it. According to Islam, she was a woman who was not worth much in the eyes of God or man. She was abused in her divorce and she felt like dying because she was a failure. She felt hopeless because the Koran gave her no comfort. She was a failure and doomed.
It was hard to embrace the idea of God having a Son, she asked for a miracle from Jesus to heal her of gallstones if he was real. She needed proof and God sent it to her.
