Microsoft CEO calls birth of son with cerebral palsy a turning point in his life
Satya Nadella, the CEO of Microsoft says that becoming the father of a special needs child was the turning point in his life.
The tech executive says it helped him understand the journey of people with disabilities better and made him feel the need to connect with others. Nadella’s son Zain was born with severe cerebral palsy.
Nadella says that when his wife was pregnant, life was going well for them. But the birth of Zain changed their plans. He says that his wife’s reaction to Zain’s birth was very different from his.
Her focus shifted to how best they could care for Zain and that instead of saying 'why us?', she felt for Zain's pain.
The Nadellas, who got married in 1992, have two other children besides Zain.
