The father of Nick Vujicic, one of the world's most beloved persons with a disability, candidly shares the mistakes, challenges and successes he and his wife faced in raising Nick from birth to an independent and satisfying adulthood.

'You may lack limbs, but don't let that define what you can or can't do.'

That's 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 non-profit organization Life Without Limbs and, most importantly, a loving and responsible husband and father himself.

Told from the perspective of a father who at times questioned God and his own worthiness, this book addresses the unique challenges of raising a special needs child. Through their stories, Boris offers practical advice and encouragement for all parents facing a 'new normal' when raising a special needs or unique child. With transparency and tenderness, he addresses the spiritual, emotional and financial challenges, as well as offering insight on how to equip a child for happiness and success in life.

Raising the Perfectly Imperfect Child is the inspiring, powerfully transparent story of how two unprepared and overwhelmed parents overcame their grief, fears, and badly shaken faith to raise such an accomplished, faith-filled and perfectly imperfect son.

Boris Vujicic was born in Yugoslavia and later immigrated with his family to Australia. He met his wife, Dushka, a nurse, at church. Nick was born in 1982. The Vujicic family lived in the United States for several years in the 1990s before returning to Australia. Boris has served as a Pastor, pursued a business career in computing and also worked as a teacher and tutor for college students in computing and management classes. Once their children were grown and self-supporting, Boris and Dushka returned to California where Nick had established his Life Without Limbs organization. Boris now works with Life Without Limbs as the chief systems and financial officer.
