Free text "The Story of Nicola" is told by his adoptive mother who gives her account of the rebirth of this deeply handicapped child. She takes the reader from the moment she met this child in a hospital bed, having been abandoned by his parents, and decided, with her husband, to bring him home, through the very difficult years of socialization, when she had to conquer many obstacles (including the breakdown of her marriage) until this child acquired an adequate degree of autonomy.
