Link Love

“Before you were conceived, I wanted you.

Before you were born, I loved you.

Before you were an hour old, I would die for you.

This is the miracle of life.”

  1. I appreciate your wanting to do the best for your baby. My brother Jim lost the hearing in an ear because of meningitis (an inflammation of the lining of the brain) caused by the common childhood disease, mumps. My grandmother had to have open heart surgery to replace 3 valves in her heart because she had rubella (a type of measles) when she was 16. If you check out the risks-vs-benefits of vaccines, I KNOW that the benefits will far outweigh the risks. All of you kids had all the vaccines that were recommended and …wow, not a kid in the bunch had problems… no autism, and none of you had any of the diseases or problems resulting from the diseases. The biggie that I see on the internet is autism…but look at all the OTHER “causes” that are spouted out there- diet, etc. Where is the research that shows positively that there is a cause and effect? Love you, Luke and S(him)! Mom (and of course your 3 cats, 2 dogs,3 chickens and 1 rabbit.) and any fish or turtles you have.

  2. Hi mom! We are definitely not swearing off vaccines, just investigating each one individually… There are some we know we won’t get and some we know we will get but it’s just the vast quantity all at once that’s frightening… Way more than when we were kids. Some of them have actually been proven ineffective, but are still strongly encouraged. I just don’t want to pump my kids full of tons of different things that may be more harmful than effective.
