I found Nick’s blog when I went to congratulate him for winning the 2nd place award for Best Newcomer during this weekend’s Blogger’s Bash Awards. I was blown away by his story! If you haven’t met Nick before, stop by his blog starting with “My Story” to get to know him. To say he’s inspiring wouldn’t do him justice. He’s defied more odds and persevered in ways I can’t fathom. I chose to reblog this post in particular because he’s requesting it be shared but be sure to read the “My Story” post first (at the top of the page).
