When our two children were young, I received a phone call from the grammar school they attended and was asked to pick them up because they were covered in red spots. We were told to call the county health department, which we did, and later a visiting county nurse confirmed that both children had the measles and needed to be quarantined.
My husband and I, as devoted Christian Scientists, immediately embraced our dear children both physically and mentally with love. However, we initially felt blindsided by this diagnosis because our children were adopted and had come to us with a folder filled with records of all their immunizations and boosters, which included a measles vaccination for both son and daughter. We had recently been praying deeply about a measles contagion in our community, but we now realized we had passively accepted the notion that these medical immunizations gave our children fail-proof protection against the disease. Our own healing experiences had proven to us that there is a more powerful and complete way to govern one’s health than through material remedies.
