From an early age, author Tom Ufert can remember his grandmother proclaiming that adversity builds character. At the time, he didna€™t completely understand what it meanta€”or know that he would actually live it. In Adversity Builds Character, Ufert shares the events that altered and shaped his life and shows how, with Goda€™s help, he was able to survive, thrive, and inspire others. In this memoir, he narrates his life story and tells about the adversity he has faceda€”his mothera€™s early divorces; the breakdown of his relationship with his sister; his adoption by family friends; his mothera€™s illness and murder; his contact with a predatory pedophile; his questioning of his own sexuality, bisexuality, and eventual acceptance of being gay; alcoholism and sexual addiction; diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis and HIV; and paralysis from a car accident.
