Be Bold, Share Truth!

I overheard an expectant father mention that his first baby was due in September.  He was excited about picking up a large package — a gift in anticipation for the arrival of his new baby. We happened to be exiting the post office at about the same time.

I boldly started a conversation with this total stranger by asking his permission: “Would you mind if I shared some unsolicited information with you?”

He answered, “Sure.”

So I started, “Please research vaccines before you agree to give them to your new baby.”

And you know what – HE WANTED TO KNOW MORE! He asked questions. He was receptive. He was APPRECIATIVE. He wanted to get the name of my website. He wanted to take my card. He was 100% supportive of his wife breastfeeding and wanted to share information about our local breastfeeding support group with her.

He totally understood that fact that there are some irregularities between the pharmaceutical industry and our government which might not be in our best interests, and was not at all offended by my approaching him. He was THANKFUL.

So, GO FOR IT. Look out for new parents. Take the bold plunge. ASK them if you can share some important information with them. Get their permission and approach gently. Parents need to be warned about the risk and potential harm of the recommended vaccine schedule.

Every parent genuinely wants the very best for their children, but they don’t have all the facts.

  1. Awesome, I do the same things, although generally with people I know. But I am very vocal on my FB page and am constantly putting information out there to try to save just one more baby at a time.

  2. Absolutely love this video message, Becky, and I could not agree with you more that we MUST continue to educate and pray! I truly believe that each of us, respectfully sharing information when, where and however we can is what will make the difference; and asking permission first is such wise advice! I have found that sharing the photo of a child that has been lost to vaccines along with a brief story, is also very powerful. We never know when something we share with love and concern just might save another child. I leave cards or brochures in different places (diaper changing stations in restrooms is a favorite;) and when appropriate I offer a card directly to the parent or parent to be. Sometimes the conversation continues and other times, I just wish them a good day and a God bless. Like you, I am the mother of grown children and I often wonder if the fact that I am older makes those I meet more receptive to my approach. However, it still takes courage to make that approach so thank you for the pep talk! God bless and take care . . .
