When my first baby was due, it did not seem possible to arrange for a home delivery. So I went to a local hospital. When it was time to go home, a test indicated that the baby had yellow jaundice, and the hospital staff wanted to keep the little fellow under special lights. I was able to sign a release and take the baby home, where I continued to pray for him.

I also asked for treatment from a Christian Science practitioner, who lovingly urged me to put the baby under the light of Christ, Truth. I knew that meant we would pray to see the innate purity of his spiritual identity. I didn't need to be concerned or anxious about the color of this baby. God forms him and maintains him. As the Bible says in Genesis, "And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness" (1:26). My son never suffered as a result of this condition, but exhibited healthy appearance and behavior.
