5.0 out of 5 stars - Engaging

Format: Paperback

Held back By Nothing is a wonderfully engaging real life success story. It is a heartwarming tale told truthfully and honestly by a parent..... From having your worst nightmare happen with your child and then embracing his disability with a non-defeatist attitude throughout his life to watching him succeed as an adult. I personally remember meeting Stephen with my two young sons when he was working at The Gap. As a parent you always wonder what youngsters might say when they interact with someone with an obvious handicap. My kids only commented on what a neat guy he was and that he was better at picking out clothes than I was!
