Tonight while on facebook, I saw someone post about her daughter and her battle with autism… my heart breaks for her. I know its got to be hard. As I was online I looked up a site about Autism and came across Generation Rescue. I heard about this site a while ago, but never really read through it completely.
Well after an hour tonight, I did… Well most of it 🙂 – I read all the information they had on vaccines.
As well as watched the video on the home page.
I have posted about all of this before… so many of you know where I stand.
I dont want to sound like a broken record… but after reading this site I feel compelled to share one thing….
The vaccination schedule…
It shows what I got as a baby… in 1983 vs. what most babies are getting today.
In 1983 most babies got 10 vaccines from birth – age 6…
Today babies get 36!

I am not writing this to say parents don’t care about their babies if they vaccinate.
Im not writing this to say Doctors dont care about our babies.
Im not writing this to say anyone who vaccinates is wrong.
Im not writing this to point fingers.
I am writing this because I was one of those moms who never knew.
I was one of those moms who just assumed Dr’s knew best.
I was one of those moms who was made to believe that if I didnt vaccinate, I was wrong.
I knew nothing about vaccines when Caleb was born…
I was 21… and just did what was expected.
Caleb for his 1st year of life battled ear infection after infection.
Caleb I remember at just a few months old acquired a 104 degree temperature after a vaccine… and when I told my Pediatrician of this, he said “Thats fine, its normal” – He also told me the swelling in Calebs leg (red and raised) Was normal as well.
After having my son poked and prodded looking for reasons as to why he was having so many colds… issues with congestion… I began to think… and question one thing… vaccines.. and that is when I did my home work… and made the decision not to give him any more… and from that day on he was a completely different baby… and I am so glad I stopped when I did… because who knows what could of happened, had I kept pumping his little body full of those things.
After I had Taite I still battled with thoughts…
“Am I putting him at risk not vaccinating?”
“Am I paranoid?”
“He will be fine if I vaccinate… right?”
“Doctors keep assuring me, its the best for my baby…”
…but after prayer… and LOTS MORE RESEARCH… I decided not to vaccinate Taite, at all… until age 2. But after 2 shots after he turned 2… I have since decided to just wait until age 5… and I am still questioning getting them then.
This is my decision.
It might not be yours.
That is fine.
It is not my place to tell others what to do.
But I just want to encourage any parent out there, to read up on vaccines…
A good place to start is THIS WEBSITE.
Read it all!!
I will end with this quote:
“Those who question the benefit of mass immunisation are not all irrational non-believers. Most support vaccination but are concerned at – and question the necessity for – the large number of vaccines and the early ages at which these are given. Many have studied the research, only to find – as I have – contradiction and uncertainty. They deserve to be treated with respect and given the opportunity for an open and honest debate.”
– Dr. Richard Halverson, letter to the British Medical Journal
