Zara's heavenly birthday came much too soon. If it hadn't, Zara's Mom, Dad and two big brothers would be celebrating Zara's second earthly birthday today, July 26, 2015, the way most families celebrate birthdays with their toddlers.
The pediatrician assured Zara's mother that Zara was in perfect health. She then was given her scheduled 15 month vaccines. By the next morning, sweet Zara had passed away.
I learned of Zara's story just this week when I read the sad but beautiful tribute written by the photographer who photographed Zara as a newborn and again when she turned one. I then talked with Zara's mother who told me how important it is to her and Zara's father that their story be shared with others.
"I pray more parents take it seriously and at least do their own research
before injecting their children with vaccines because they are told
that's what they have to do."
The photos that you see here were shared by Zara's mother. There are several more photos of Zara and her beautiful family included in "Zara's Story". I invite you to read Zara's Story and ask that you honor Zara's brief but happy life by sharing her story with others. Lastly, please take a moment to offer a thought or prayer for Zara's mother, father and brothers. God bless and take care . . .

We often hear that vaccines and the current childhood vaccine schedule are "safe and effective" and that serious adverse effects are "one in a million." If that were true, stories like Gabriel's and the others that you'll find at "Families Speak" and "We Remember" would not exist. Many thanks to Gabriel's mom for sharing his story.
Gabriel's Story . . . as told by his mother, Erin
"His world and ours are still just barely overlapping."
Gabriel was born in the summer of 2006. I had a perfect pregnancy, and after an uneventful 12 hour labor, Gabriel was born on his due date, beautiful and healthy. He nursed soon after birth, and we all went home two days later.
I noticed in those first few days that when Gabriel looked at me he seemed so aware for a newborn. He would look me straight in the eyes, almost speaking to me with them. I had high hopes for my new little guy, my second child but first son. He continued to do everything early, from rolling over and walking, to potty training before he was a year old. His doctor was even impressed at how he exceeded his milestones, as Gabriel was doing things his own daughter wasn't doing yet who was several months older. We started teaching him baby sign language, but stopped around 12 months because his verbal skills were excelling so quickly.
Our whole world changed the day we took him in for his 12 month well baby checkup. We didn't know then that we were about to make the biggest mistake of our lives. After receiving his MMR vaccine in the muscle of his leg (I later learned that MMR is to be given subcutaneously, not intramuscularly), the injection site became inflamed and red, and tender to the touch for several weeks. Gabriel was irritable like never before. He seemed agitated and cranky much of the time, wanting to be held constantly.

In this informative and powerful video, of a presentation that took place on Mother's Day 2015 in Berkeley, CA, you'll hear four intelligent, articulate women share their knowledge, experience and personal stories about the dangers of vaccines. Dr. Tina Kimmel, former Research Scientist for the CA Dept. of Public Health’s Immunization Branch, and head of the Personal Belief Exemption Program, explains how approval of the Hepatitis B vaccine for newborns was based purely on profit. The panel makes a strong case for opposing CA SB277, which was signed into law on June 30th; however, the information presented is of importance to all. Scroll down for information on each panel participant.
The full version of the presentation which includes a Q&A appears below.
In May, I shared a post by Courtney Charles entitled, "Do Vaccines Violate the Christian Faith?" In the following post, "Calling All Christians" Courtney addresses the use of aborted fetal cell vaccines, and the dilemma that causes for those opposed to abortion, especially in light of the recent approval of CA SB277 which eliminates religious and personal belief exemptions. Inspired by a scripture passage, Courtney's message speaks to both Christians and non-Christians who oppose vaccines due to deeply held religious beliefs. It also reminds me of the scripture passage that "nudged" me to start Vaccine Choice Prayer Community. Read about that here.
Note: There is much misinformation about the Vatican and the use of aborted fetal cell vaccines. For accurate information, please visit Children of God for Life; and for further clarification of the "right of conscience" please read this May 6, 2015 letter sent to California lawmakers by Children of God for Life.
This is the average child’s vaccine record. Luca’s mom shared this “immunization record” of all the shots her precious baby received from birth to 24 months. She trusted her doctor and the US Medical system 100%. She grew up in Eastern Europe and many of her dreams came true when she arrived as an adult in the USA. She never suspected that maybe the U.S. vaccine recommendations could actually harm her child.
