Vaccine Feature

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My family is going to be featured in a story about non-vaccinating parents in our local newspaper. It's a Gannette...I'm hoping that a) it turns out really well and b) they run it in the USA Today.

Edit: Here it is! http://www.clarionledger.com/article...904140318/1023

The photographer came to our house to get some pictures for the story. She mentioned that she wanted to "do a few shots inside and some outside."

And my 5 year old looked up in horror and said, "Why do we have to get shots? I don't want any shots!"


Ironic....hahahaha.



Anyway, after it's printed I'll post a link here. The reporter said she was really interested in portraying an "average family" who didn't vaccinate. She said too many people think non-vaccinators must belong to an extreme religion or be "weird" in some way, lol. So anyway, I"m excited that she seemed to want to show our family and our decision in a positive light.

They definitely presented you in a very good, dare I say "normal" light! Which is good! That really stinks that you didn't find out about the MS law until after you moved there. If I was in the same situation I would have to do the same thing, either move or homeschool.

Well, technically, I knew about it. The reporter misunderstood me a bit. My husband couldn't turn down the job offer he had because it was too much money.

But I really, really thought that there *had* to be a way to get my girls in school if I wanted to.
