Nick Vujicic, who was born with no arms or legs, has overcome steep challenges to now live what he describes as a ‘ridiculously good life’. Nick, who travels worldwide and inspires millions via speaking and media appearances, is married and a father himself. He acknowledges that overcoming his physical challenges would have been impossible without the wise and effective efforts of his parents and family. In Raising The Perfectly Imperfect Child Nick’s father, Boris, tells the story of what it took to parent such a unique child. And he offers insight and practical advice to any parent raising a child with special needs.
Like most parents, Nick’s father and mother had no warning or preparation on how to raise a child with a severe disability. They made their way by trial and error and have much empathy and hard-won wisdom to share with others in the same situation.
