I should like to express my deep appreciation for Christian Science through these pages in telling of the beautiful and complete healing of our son some years ago of a dislocated hip, a condition which was congenital.

The dislocation was first discovered when the boy was under two years of age and had not yet walked. My husband and I were earnest students of Christian Science and wished to see the healing come through Science alone. However, strong opposition to this desire from members of the family who were not students of Science so bore in upon us that it appeared wiser under the circumstances to permit surgery for the child.

Two operations were performed, after which a plaster cast was applied. Following this a steel brace was put on the child. During this time I held to the truths taught by Science: that all real being is in God, divine Mind, and that the reflection of Mind, divine Principle, or Love, is the only action or operation taking place.
