Sadly, this page is lacking a certain class of person. This kind of person has no reason to like this page because they don't have autism, and they no longer have a child with autism, but this kind of person can be found elsewhere on the web. This is the saddest story, and I hope it makes you think about the value of 'anecdote'.
"We had a beautiful baby boy. We were hippies so we didn't believe in vaccinations, we weren't sure, but the autism scare made us sure that vaccinations weren't for us. Around 18 months of age, we noticed things were different about our beautiful baby boy. After a 3 year struggle, we finally managed to get to see three specialists which eventually led to an autism diagnosis. We still didn't vaccinate our boy. We loved him. He was beautiful. Age nine, he contracted a serious case of measles. In those last few days of life, at the height of his fever, his autism symptoms all but disappeared. That was the only time he ever was able to articulate those words: 'I love you mom, I love you dad'. We have two beautiful girls now. Both fully vaccinated, neither has autism."
