Life Without Limbs

Suppose a couple that was expecting a baby had a sonogram and found that their child would be born without arms of legs.  Many would say that they should abort the child because someone with these handicaps has no chance of living a happy or productive life.  Anyone who thinks this has obviously never heard of Nick Vujicic.  Here is what Wikipedia says about him.

Nicholas JamesNickVujicic (/ˈvɔɪ.ɪɪ/ voy-ich-ich;[note 1] Serbian: [ʋûjitʃitɕ]; born 4 December 1982[2][3]) is an Australian Christian evangelist and motivational speaker born with phocomelia,[4] a rare disorder characterized by the absence of legs and arms.

Vujicic was born in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, in 1982, to Dušanka and Borislav Vujičić, devout Serbian Orthodox emigrants from Yugoslavia.   He was born with phocomelia without some fully formed limbs.

Vujicic has two small and deformed feet, one of which he calls his “chicken drumstick” because of its shape.[7] Originally, he was born with the toes of that foot fused. An operation was performed to separate the toes so that he could use them as fingers to grab, turn a page, or perform other functions.[8] He has been able to use his foot to operate an electric wheelchair, a computer and a mobile phone. Vujicic notes that he had an “amazingly normal childhood”.

On 12 February 2012, Vujicic married Kanae Miyahara. The couple has two sons and live in Southern California.[14]
