Your guide to giving your child with special needs love, roots, & wings
"You may lack limbs, but dont let that define what you can or cant do."
Thats the life-changing advice Boris Vujicic spoke to his son, Nick, who was born without arms or legs. With the help of his parents, Nick has become an internationally known inspirational speaker, a best-selling author, the founder of the nonprofit organization Life Without Limbs and, most important, a loving and responsible husband and father himself.
But Nicks journey didnt start there. Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child is the inspiring, powerfully transparent story of how two unprepared and overwhelmed parentsBoris and Dushka Vujicicovercame their grief, fears, and badly shaken faith to raise such an accomplished, faith-filled, and perfectly imperfect son.
Through their stories, Boris offers practical advice and encouragement for all parents facing a "new normal" when raising a child with special needs or unique challenges. With tenderness, he addresses the spiritual, emotional, and financial challenges, and offers insights on how to equip a child for happiness and success in life.
"I highly recommend Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child to anyone who has questions about bringing up a special-needs son or daughter."

In this wonderful book, you will discover a fathers loving heart for the son he did not quite expectand you will learn that there is much more to successfully raising a child with a disability than youd ever imagine. I highly recommend Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child to anyone who has questions about bringing up a special-needs son or daughter. Actually, its powerful and very personal message will bless any parents who long to show the unbiased love of Christ within their family. Read it and be blessed!"
