I think it's safe to say that parents who choose to vaccinate their children believe that vaccines are safe and effective. Parents trust their pediatricians; and U.S. pediatricians trust the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) which is the U.S. leading public health agency under the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The following statement is taken from the HHS website.
"It is the mission of the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) to enhance and protect the health and well-being of all Americans. We fulfill that mission by providing for effective health and human services and fostering advances in medicine, public health, and social services."
What if, when it comes to vaccine safety, HHS is NOT doing their job; and hasn't done their job for more than 30 years? Should they still be trusted? If you're a parent, grandparent or anyone who cares about children, you should be concerned, especially since during that time, the childhood vaccine schedule has increased dramatically.

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."
Growing up and going to school in the 50's and 60's, our class sizes were quite large with one teacher per class. In my case, going to Catholic school, the teacher was always a woman and often, that woman was a nun. We didn't have classes for children with special needs and I didn't know anyone with autism or anyone who would now be considered on the autism spectrum. When I started researching vaccines in the 80's, there was very little mention of autism in the many books and articles I read; and it wasn't until 2007 that I met a woman whose little boy displayed autistic like behavior and was later diagnosed with autism. His mother believes that his autism was triggered by a flu shot she received during pregnancy. That little guy's picture is on my desk and continues to inspire me each day to keep sharing information so that parents can make well informed vaccine decisions.
On April 27th, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its latest autism spectrum disorder (ASD) estimates. According to their new figures, as of 2014, 1 in 59 eight year olds has been identified with autism spectrum disorder with ASD being about four times more common in boys than in girls. (Read more here and here.) According to the CDC's own figures, In the year 2000, that number was 1 in 150. In 1970 that number was 1 in 10,000.

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.
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.
“...any vaccine that includes aluminum adjuvant, you will get aluminum from that going into your brain...It is no longer safe to use aluminum in vaccination."
Professor Chris Exley ~ November 27, 2017
Professor Chris Exley, Keele University, UK
So I am prudent; and I only put my neck on the guillotine when it’s absolutely necessary; and that is now.”
As promised in my prior post, below is a video of Professor Chris Exley presenting the findings of his recent study, "Aluminium in brain tissue in autism" to a French audience. A transcript is also included.
Although Dr. Exley's findings are new, we now have scientific proof that it was never safe to use aluminium in vaccinations. Parents of children who have developed autism or experienced other serious injuries and even death following vaccines; as well as some courageous physicians and scientists, have been speaking out about the harm that vaccines can and do cause for many years. Not only have their stories and findings been ignored; but they are often degraded, discredited and humiliated.
When someone as knowledgeable and well respected as Professor Exley, who has been studying aluminium for over 30 years, can be "shocked" by new findings; change his opinion about the safety of aluminium adjuvants in vaccines; and humbly and courageously put his career on the line to tell the world; perhaps then those who cling to the belief that "vaccines are safe and effective" and "the science is settled" and have even been less than kind to those who question vaccine safety; should be equally humble and rethink their stance.
Thank you Professor Chris Exley and your team of researchers; and many thanks to the families whose deceased children made these findings possible. May God bless and take care of all of you.
Below is a full transcript of the above video -- Professor Chris Exley discussing his study, "Aluminum in brain tissue in autism".
"So we need now to be extremely careful and cautious about when we decide to use a vaccine which has an aluminium adjuvant. It worries me enormously to see these data and I was not, I was not worried before we had these data."
Professor Chris Exley, November 2017
In the video below, Professor Chris Exley discusses his recent study, "Aluminum in brain tissue in autism" which I wrote about in my last post. (A full transcript is also provided.) Additional comments from Professor Exley and a Q&A will be shared in Part 2.
With autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in American children now at 1 in 36, Professor Exley's findings are more relevant than ever. You probably won't hear about these findings in mainstream media; therefore, it's up to us to share this information with parents and grandparents, especially those who are still vaccinating their children with aluminum containing vaccines and the newborn Vitamin K shot. It is also very important to share this information with physicians, especially pediatricians who administer vaccines. Your efforts just might protect a child from a diagnosis of autism and a family from a lifetime of heartache.
