Mary is almost six and a half years old, and she enjoys going to school, dancing, singing, swimming, and playing with her sister and friends. Today I looked at her beautiful face smiling while she was playing with her dolls, and I can’t believe how far we have come since the day she was born and how blessed I am to call her mine. At first glance, you wouldn’t know the battles that she has been through.
When Mary was born I didn’t know what ingredients were put into vaccinations, just like most parents. I was brainwashed into thinking that I must vaccinate my child since this is what U.S. social norms say that we as parents are supposed to do for our children. So Mary was vaccinated like every other typical newborn in this country. After each vaccination, she would have a negative reaction. At that point, the medical professionals did not know what was wrong with her, but looking back now we know that it was two DTaP vaccines that she received on July 9th, 2007 and August 13th, 2007.
