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..."
