Below is a powerful message from the young mother of three beautiful children, including twin boys who were severely injured by vaccines. Sadly, stories like this are far too common. Thank you Alexandra for permission to share. God bless you and your beautiful family.
To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys
by Alexandra Simone
To The Doctor That Injured My Twin Boys:
I’m sure you don’t remember me but I will never be able to forget you.
I feel a little hesitant to blame you for their injuries because I know that it didn’t start with you. I know that it started in the womb. It started when I was pregnant with my boys in Okinawa, Japan while my husband was stationed there in the Marine Corps and the military hospital staff injected me with the TDaP and flu shot in my first trimester and injected me with RhoGAM in my third trimester. It continued when my boys were born as preemies at 34 weeks and how at 4lb 8oz my son, Noah, was injected with Vitamin K and Hep B upon entering the world while my son, Caleb - 4lb 5oz, was injected with Vitamin K and did not receive his Hep B until two weeks later. It is chilling to see how my Caleb is the one with some language while my Noah remains non-verbal and unheard. I know that their injuries began during the earliest, most fragile period of their development and because of it they struggled to thrive.
But mark my words and despite their early insults, they were born healthy, they were born strong. Two weeks in the NICU with our favorite nursing staff and we were out of there, headed home, and we started to meet all our milestones! My boys were not gone just yet… they still had a chance…
I still can’t blame you just yet…
I remember the day I prepared my boys for their 2-month wellness check-up and in the midst of the chaos of throwing together bottles and diapers to get there on time, my husband asks me if it is necessary for us to go to this appointment and maybe we should rethink their shots. He didn’t really want us to vaccinate the boys but I was furious that he would try to have this conversation with me as I am heading out the door to our doctor’s appointment. I couldn’t fathom how my husband could possibly know any better than my doctor! We had been together since I was 15 years old and now I was a 21 year old mom. There’s no way my husband could know better than my doctor. I shut him down so quickly before he could talk and ran out that door to get two more shots…
...and two more at 4 months…
...and two more at 6…
If you've read the past few "Restoring Olivia" posts that I've shared on this website or follow www.restoringolivia.com, you know the monumental health challenges that 19 year old Olivia has faced throughout her young life as a result of vaccines she received when she was 18 months old, followed by years of medical treatments that often did more harm than good. The last few months have been especially difficult for Olivia and her mother, Kelly; so I was overjoyed when I read Kelly's message about Olivia being strong enough to return to school! Please join me in sending love and prayers to Olivia and Kelly for a strong and healthy 2018-2019 school year!
Back to School - 2018!!!!
by Kelly Johnson, www.restoringolivia.com
I am so encouraged that Olivia is strong enough to go back to school!!! it was a busy summer rehabbing this beauty! You can read about it here:
Thank you for all the powerful prayers for her recovery this summer - we felt your love. Even if we have a long way to go, I'm incredibly thankful for every "mini" step forward.
She definitely looks irritated here because I missed getting a picture this morning and tried to get one after school but the rain started pouring down!
If you and your children are fortunate enough to have escaped obvious vaccine injury, just imagine what it's like for parents who have watched their child's physical and neurological health decline after vaccines, or worse yet, imagine what it's like to lose a child due to vaccines. Now imagine what it's like to watch three of your children "slip away" into their own little worlds on the same day -- the day they got the same vaccine.
Richie, Robbie & Claire
In October, 2016, I shared a post entitled, "They just shut off...all the giggles...all the smiles..." The post included a video of Brenda and David McDowell telling the story of their beautiful, healthy triplets who woke up happy, healthy 9 month old babies on June 25, 2007. At around 10AM, they each received a pneumococcal vaccine; and by that evening, they were severely autistic. Brenda, an educational audiologist, describes how one by one, she watched her babies "slip away" into their own little worlds -- Claire at 12 Noon; Richie at 2PM and Robbie at 5PM.
Seven years later, the McDowells learned that weeks after their children were injured by that particular pneumococcal vaccine; it was pulled from the market due to contamination; but not before it claimed the life of another two year old child.
In the 2017 Michigan for Vaccine Choice video below, the McDowells talk about their ordeal and David gives wise advice to all parents. Take time to listen; and please share with others.
“I don’t presume to tell you what to do. Whether to vaccinate or not to vaccinate; but I do presume to tell you that you have to take responsibility for that decision. You have to do your own research. You have to make your own decision. You have to be strong and you have to be fully responsible for your decision; because you will be fully responsible for the consequences of that decision, whatever it is.”
"...the only way we can describe it was as if her soul was sucked out of her body. She was literally the shell of the little person we use to know...everything was gone...she acted deaf and blind..."
"...at 2 o'clock that day we lost Richie. We watched our first boy shut down...he acted like he couldn't hear...I knew we had a second hit when he started staring at the
"...and then we moved on to Robbie...You could see his smile disappear, but he was still looking at us, still responding to his name and by 5PM, we watched Robbie slip away . . . It was so hard. We were in shock. "
"We had normal, fully developing children that morning; and we now had
three severely injured children that night."
"There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that the vaccine was
100% the cause of them shutting off."

Olivia was born perfectly healthy. Now 19 years old, she began having seizures at the age of 18 months following the MMR vaccine. Her mother, Kelly Johnson, shares her daughter's difficult and painful journey, as well as her own, in her beautifully written, touching, and often heart wrenching "Restoring Olivia" blog posts. As Kelly shared recently...
"Olivia's illness....her disability.....her uncontrolled seizures....this cruel interruption to our lives is the result of vaccine injury. I know, it's a hard reality for some to accept, but unfortunately, it is true. Vaccines destroyed my daughter's health."
From "No more shame" by Kelly Johnson
Kelly's latest update, "Mending..." is a joyful one that shares in print and video the progress Olivia is making after a recent extended hospital stay that resulted in four new serious conditions. I invite you to read Kelly's post and watch the "Olivia on the Mend" video below. I also ask that you pray for sweet Olivia and her devoted and determined mother, Kelly.
"What's important is that the mending has begun and I feel like I have a better understanding of how the vaccines tore a hole in the Perfection she was given."
Having come to know many mothers of vaccine injured children and mothers who have lost a child to vaccine injury, it disturbs me greatly when these strong but wounded women are marginalized by others who choose not to believe what these mothers know to be true.
In the video below, Hillary Simpson, the mother of three children, including a vaccine injured little boy, eloquently delivers a powerful message in an effort to spread awareness about an issue which, as she states, "ultimately makes her CRAZY." Watch, listen, share and please remember Hillary, her children, and ALL "crazy mothers" and their vaccine injured children in your thoughts and prayers.
"As a mother of a vaccine injured child, the hardest comment to hear from people is when they say, over and over again... 'Don’t listen to them. They’re just a bunch of crazy mothers.'... I am a mother. I am the one who knows the rhythm of my child’s heartbeat. I am the one who gave life to this baby, no easy feat. I am that baby’s first food, first sustenance in every sense of the word. Emotionally, physically, spiritually. Whether the first or the third, I have what it needs to survive and thrive. And now that they’ve grown a little… As a mother, I know when they need to eat or poop or get a big hug. I know when they are hiding, I know if they are lying. I know who hit who first without even trying. I know how they like to sleep: one bundled up, one without covers, and one somewhere in between. I know all of their dreams. I know their fears, their hopes. I know their wins and their losses...I know how to keep them safe, how to read the emotion on their little face... And most importantly… I know what happened to my little boy. I know he had his shots one day at six months..."
"After experiencing the devastation of vaccine injury, there are certain words you will never hear the mother of a vaccine injured child say."
Vaccine injury is real, and far more frequent than we are led to believe. Joshua Coleman, the father of a young son who was left paralyzed by his childhood vaccines. has compiled an album of powerful photos and messages from other parents of vaccine injured children. Several are included in this post. If you have access to Facebook, click here to view the entire #SaidNoMother album.
Alexander's story, as told by his mother, Jennifer, and reprinted below, was first published at Stop Mandatory Vaccination. Jennifer shares not only Alexander's vaccine injury story, but also their long and painful ordeal with the National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, which ultimately ruled that Alexander's death was caused by the vaccines he received.
February 17, 2005 - May 11, 2005
“My son, Alexander, suffered a seizure and cardiac arrest on April 29, 2005, three and a half days after receiving his first set of vaccines.The vaccines he received were the DTaP, HiB and Hepatitis B combo (Comvax), inactivated polio, and Prevnar. He coded, but was revived and placed on life support, however, the damage to his brain was catastrophic. After 12 days in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and two independent determinations of brain death, we removed life support on May 11, 2005. He was only 12 weeks old. He was born on February 17, 2005 and was a healthy little boy. Despite that, he died as a result of seizure and encephalopathy that resulted from his two-month vaccinations on April 25, 2005.
It is always painful to learn of another child lost to vaccines; and another family left to live with grief and regret. Owen was just two months old when he received eight vaccines. He passed away 48 hours later. Owen's death, like so many of the children on the "We Remember" page of this website was ruled as Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Click here to read Owen's story, as told by his mother, Jeanee; and please say a prayer for Jeanee, Owen's dad, sisters and family. As I read the comment section that followed Owen's story, I learned of two more children who died shortly after receiving vaccines -- Stephen who died at three months and Corey who died in 1995 at six months. Both cases were ruled as SIDS. Please urge parents and expectant parents to research vaccines thoroughly before allowing anything to be injected into their precious children.
“I wanted to share my story because my hope is that no one else has to experience the pain in my heart every single day. My son, Owen Matthew Stokes, passed away October 25, 2017. He was born August 18, 2017 and was just two months old. He was born at term and weighed 8.8 lbs. Owen was perfectly healthy in every way. He did not receive the Hepatitis B shot at birth. Even in my pro-vax mindset, I did not see the need at that time to give that to a newborn. He did receive Vitamin K at birth, but I didn’t know anything about Vitamin K at that time."
Many thanks to Owen's mother for telling her story in an effort to protect others from the heartbreak that she and Owen's father now live with; and thanks, also, to Melissa Curtin and the team at Stop Mandatory Vaccines for sharing Owen's story.

I had a hard time writing in 2017...
It was this persistent feeling of having to "wordsmith" each and every post. An unrelenting feeling of pushing back what I really wanted....and needed to write about. As time went on it became impossible and the words stopped coming.
I mean, this is my journey....my story, so why am I fudging my way through blogging it? I think I misinterpreted who my audience is, and what they "want" to hear. A couple months ago I heard a heartbreaking interview with a young couple who had recently lost their 20-month old son. It was her question that rocked my world...... It went something like this....."Why haven't I heard stories of other children before? If I would have heard their stories, I may have questioned it and made a different choice and he would still be here."
I need to apologize to this young couple. I need to tell them I'm sorry for being a coward. I haven't been brave enough. I feel as though I've lived two lifetimes with this sobering reality. I've learned so much about Olivia's situation and am passionate to put my pen to paper, but in order to move in that direction, I need to explain an important truth.
Many pregnant mothers, and fathers too, become intimidated by their obstetricians and agree to vaccines during pregnancy, even when their gut instinct is telling them not too. It is very important to understand that doctors who recommend vaccines are "following orders" and doing as they are told by the CDC and medical associations who also follow CDC recommendations. As doctors have shared, they do not study vaccines in medial school and relatively few do independent vaccine research after medical school. I have witnessed expectant parents who were considering vaccines during pregnancy decide against it, simply after reading the vaccine package insert. (See a sampling of excerpts from package inserts at end of this post.) For mom's and baby's health, it is incredibly important that expectant parents educate themselves about vaccine risks before agreeing to any vaccines. It's the responsible thing to do. Simply "trusting" your doctor is not enough.
The following information and video are from World Mercury Project.
The CDC recommends that pregnant women receive flu and TDaP vaccines even though vaccine package inserts state that "safety and effectiveness have not been established in pregnant women." Mothers are reporting miscarriage, pre-term labor and health issues for themselves and their children following these vaccines. A recent CDC study found that pregnant women vaccinated with the influenza vaccine had two times greater odds of miscarrying their babies compared to women who did not receive the flu vaccine
Cathy Isaacs was pregnant with twins when, against her better judgement, her doctor convinced her to get a flu vaccine. Within hours of receiving the vaccine Cathy began to miscarry. She lost her son. Her daughter was vaccine-injured and subsequently diagnosed with Autism. Listen as Cathy tells her story in the video below.
