Last summer, when I felt "the nudge" to gather a community to pray for the protection of vaccine choice rights, little did I know how much a part of me the Vaccine Choice Prayer Community would become. Through the magic of the internet, I have connected with people throughout the United States, in Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the UK, Africa and more. I have met mothers and children who have touched my heart in ways that I never imagined.
I have met mothers and grandmothers of vaccine injured children; mothers whose children died following vaccine injury; mother "warriors" who are valiantly working to educate others about the dangers of vaccines and the current vaccine schedule; and mothers who have stepped far outside of their comfort zone to become outspoken advocates for the protection of parental choice and vaccine choice rights. Strong, amazing, beautiful women who have put aside their personal pain, done extensive research on vaccine related issues and now spend a great deal of time sharing their stories and their knowledge to protect other children and families from the heartache they have experienced.

I worked at a funeral home for several years, and during that time I had the privilege of helping families through some of the most difficult times of their lives. All losses are painful, but without a doubt, the most painful losses were those involving the loss of a child -- no matter what the age of the child or the age of the mother.
The precious children you see above are some of the many children who have died as a result of vaccine injury. In cases like these, it is especially heart wrenching that the mother not only grieves for her child; but also bears a tremendous sense of guilt. Guilt that she didn't research the dangers of vaccines beforehand; guilt that she brought her child in for the vaccines; and guilt because, as one mother recently shared, "I even held him down so he could be vaccinated."
I do not have a vaccine injured child; nor have I lost a child. I was blessed to be able to spend Mother's Day 2015 with my now adult daughters who are without a doubt, the three most precious gifts I have ever been given. I treasure my time with my girls and thank God for choosing me to be their mother.
Throughout Mother's Day, as I do everyday, I thought of the many mothers I have come to know through the Vaccine Choice Prayer Community. I pray that Jesus and His mother, Mary, comforts and strengthens them; and grants them peace.
When you read this post, or anytime you think of it, please offer a prayer, a thought or a moment of silence for all mothers who are grieving the loss of a child; and please pray for the protection of vaccine choice rights and an end to vaccine induced injury and death. God bless and take care.
“You cannot be in the presence of a profoundly vaccine damaged child and not know that child could be your own. And you cannot try to comfort a mother who has just buried a baby who has died from a vaccine … and not know that you could be the one standing over the grave. When it happens to your child, the risks are 100 percent.” ~ Barbara Loe Fisher (Founder, National Vaccine Information Center)
