Parents Tried To Cure Their Baby Daughter's Tumor With Faith Healing!

Tue, May 31, 2011 6:35pm EST by 6 Comments

Instead of taking baby Alayna to a doctor, Timothy and Rebecca Wyland prayed. Her tumor then grew to the size of a baseball and pushed her eyeball out of its socket!

The Wylands, members of a Christina sect that shuns medicine, lost custody of Alayna and are standing trial in an Oregon court on child abuse charges. They face a possible five year prison sentence. Is that enough punishment?Timothy and Rebecca Wyland recognized that medical attention was mandated for this condition, but instead “anointed her with oils and laid down hands,” Oregon state prosecutor Christine Landers told the court.

Poor Alayna went without proper medical attention for months and months and by the time she was 6 months old the growth was so big she was almost blind in one eye.

After her case was discovered, Alayna was taken into care and given treatment for the tumor, which is known as a hemangioma. She’s now 17 months old and thought to be recovering well — while her parents are facing time behind bars.

It’s the latest controversy involving the The Followers of Christ Church. An investigation by The Oregonian newspaper in 1998 claimed 21 children in the sect had died from preventable causes!

What do you think about this frightening story HollyMoms? Should the parents be jailed? Or should we respect their religious views?

Those people are not close to parents! They are mostly torturing theyre baby, Alayna was, wait, IS in pain. Alayna probably Will hate them because she online has one eye!!! What is wrong with the “parents” Timothy and Rebecca? THIS IS WHAT YOU. ALWAYS DO: Take someone who is sick in anyway, to the doctor. THEN PRAY. Praying is what you do when you take someone somewhere and there is a chance. If there is not a chance, then you still pray. God can help, sometimes he WILL help!

The parents should be jailed…and that baby should never have to see them again. Fine, have religious views..I have mine too…but not when it comes to the health of a child. Do they get it through their dense heads that their baby was almost blinded because of their stupidity?! I doubt it…they are probably still trying to justify what they did. God created doctors for a reason…to help us deal with health problems. Shame on these “parents,” who proved they are no parents at all!
