Perhaps no one could have been more prejudiced against what they thought Christian Science to be than I was. A friend asked us to call a Christian Science practitioner for our babe whom physicians said could not live because of arrested development. This we did, and the next morning the child's lower limbs, which had been pronounced paralyzed, were moving. It had slept and fed normally for the first time, with no expression of discomfort. My husband and I had planned a trip prior to this and we now took the child with us. Under the care of a practitioner the child's spine was completely healed. A condition of cholera infantum arose later; we did not get in touch with the practitioner in time and the child passed on, but the babe's first healing had been the means of bringing to me a glimpse of life in God, Spirit, and I was lifted up in this hour to the consciousness of man as "never born and never dying" (Science and Health, p. 258), but as an immortal idea of the loving Father-Mother God. Death has never since seemed real.

When people asked why I continued to be interested in Christian Science after my child had passed on, I could say truthfully that Science had not failed, but my ignorance of it had caused failure. Enlightenment had already shown me the divine Principle that could be applied to all my problems in life and I pressed on.
