In the year 1911 a son was born to us, and though he appeared to be physically quite normal, it was soon seen that all was not well mentally. Many doctors and specialists saw him, but his condition became worse until, finally, he was partially paralyzed and thought to be quite blind. An eminent brain specialist pronounced the case incurable and said that the child would never develop mentally or physically, because the brain was badly damaged.

At this point I met a friend who had often spoken to me of Christian Science, and I told her of the specialist's diagnosis. She comforted me by saying that there was a higher power than that of the doctor, and emphatically told me not to believe the diagnosis. This was so much in accord with what I wished to do—especially as I had always had a great faith in God's goodness—that I took her advice, and left her feeling much happier. A few days later our doctor saw the child and said that a miracle had occurred, for he saw, for the first time, signs of mental development.
