Title: Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child
Subtitle: Facing Challenges With Strength, Courage and Hope
Author: Boris Vujicic
Genre: Christian Living/Parenting
Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child is written by Nick Vujicic's father Boris Vujicic. You may recognize Nick Vujicic's name. I have reviewed several other books that were written by Nick that are absolutely worth reading!
In 1982, Boris and his wife Dushka thought they were having a healthy baby boy. All of their prenatal visits and ultrasounds were normal. When Dushka gave birth they got the shock of a lifetime! Their son Nick was born without any arms or legs!
Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child is Boris and Dushka's heart wrenching and inspiring story of their response to this life changing event. As born again Christians, Boris shares throughout the book the role that their faith played in their response to their son's disability. He is brutally honest and raw about their struggles throughout Nick's childhood. He also shares the joy and exuberance that the family experienced as Nick grew into an adult, thrived, married and became a father!
Grab your tissues though when you start reading! If the book doesn't make you tear up, you may wan to check your pulse! As a mom I cried with this family during their struggles and I cheered for them when they succeeded!
I recommend this book to any parent that has a disabled child. Boris gives so much practical advice for succeeding in your marriage and parenting when you have a child with any kind of disability. This book is a must read!
