"Before we even knew something was wrong, we used to do the family rosary. During rosary, I remember her in my arms, laughing, smiling and kicking her feet and I thought, she must see something. And it just never went away," said Carol Blatnik, describing her now 14-year-old daughter Margaret being spiritually curious, even as an infant.
Margaret Blatnik was born with an Apgar score of 9. At the age of 2, she was diagnosed with Autism. Her mother, Carol, has reason to believe her vaccinations have a lot to do with her Autism subsequent to being born a normal, healthy baby. According to the Immunization Awareness Society (IAS) study, many children were more likely to suffer from asthma, eczema, ear infections, hyperactivity and other chronic conditions after the United States changed the MMR vaccine in 1992.
Regardless of the diagnosis, Carol says she has no revenge in her heart. She has watched her progress over the years as her and her family have been persistent in trying various healing methods (most recently using a hypobaric chamber) and allowing her to express her strong sense of faith in the Catholic church.
"I think I have real trust that God will work it out," said Carol.
