At the birth of my niece her father called me in great anxiety and announced that she had been born with her nose twisted to the side of her face. The doctor had advised that many months of constant manipulation would be required to reshape her face.

Mrs. Eddy's definition of "children" and that of "creator," given in the Glossary of Science and Health, were earnestly held to.

At the time of the birth the doctor had predicted that the mother would need to have further treatment, but later upon examination he found that she also had been healed.
