Stories of a Medical Doctor and Her Family
(Minghui.org) Ms. Yu Hong (alias) is a physician in her 40s. She and her husband do not practice Falun Dafa, but her parents-in-law and sister-in-law are practitioners. Because of this, the couple has learned that Falun Dafa is good and greatly benefited from it in many ways. The following are just a few examples.
An Anemic Newborn Fully Recovers
Yu Hong's son was born in 2006 with severe anemia. The baby had to be monitored in an intensive care unit (ICU) with intravenous and oxygen supplies. But even after a blood test and CT scan, the doctors were not able to decide what was really wrong. The baby refused milk and was near death. The hospital issued an official notice that the baby was in critical condition.
Five days after the baby was born, Yu Hong's husband told his sister, “Our baby has a blood illness that modern medicine cannot cure. We may have to give up.”
His sister, a Falun Dafa practitioner, said, “No way. We are a family of Dafa practitioners. Because the baby chose our family, he won't just leave so quickly. The two of you should change your view of Dafa once and for all and start believing and reciting 'Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good' from now on. Carry a Dafa amulet in your pocket and plead for Master's help.”
So they followed her advice.
One day, Yu Hong's sister-in-law came over and helped with their household chores. While going about her business, she stumbled upon some notes that her brother had written during a company-sponsored meeting to slander Falun Dafa held at his workplace.
“How could you participate in that? There are many practitioners in our family. Don't you know that Falun Dafa is good?” she asked her brother.
“It was merely meant to show compliance to my superiors. Everyone was required to attend those meetings,” he replied.
“But that is wrong. Whoever participates in those meetings will incur karma and have to repay it through their own suffering later. You must make a public announcement to negate whatever you have said and done against Dafa.”
Yu Hong's husband did, indeed, writer a solemn statement declaring that he negated everything he'd ever said against Falun Dafa and its founder while under the influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). He wrote that he would remember “Falun Dafa is good, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good,” be supportive of Dafa and practitioners, become a good person, and break away from the CCP's organizations. Both Yu Hong and her husband renounced their memberships in the CCP and its affiliated organizations. They also destroyed the notes from the meetings.
The next day, they went to see another well-known pediatrician. After a careful exam, the doctor told them that the cause of their son's anemia was blood loss from the umbilical cord at birth and that it would not persist or develop into anything serious. The baby was soon discharged from the ICU and they brought him home from the hospital. Their whole family rejoiced to hear the good news.
Once at home, the baby drank 140 milliliters of milk at once. Soon afterward, his anemia disappeared. The baby grew up to be a healthy and smart boy.
A Boy Grows Up in Dafa
Yu Hong's parents-in-law helped take care of their grandson. They often taught him to recite “Falun Dafa is good” and had him listen to Master Li's lectures. When he learned to stand and walk, he would imitate his grandparents doing the Dafa exercises and watch them sending righteous thoughts. While doing the sitting meditation with his still-hairless head, he looked just like the little monk in one of the scenes in a Shen Yun performance.
From the time he could speak, the child claimed he was a little Dafa disciple and would sing the song “Falun Dafa Is Good.” He went out to distribute Dafa materials with his grandparents.
After he started school, he went to a Fa study group with his grandparents and aunt during school breaks and holidays. In last year's final exams, he ranked in the top ten of over 300 students. All the adults who know him agree that he is a kind-hearted and intelligent kid. He was also elected to the student government in his elementary school.
The boy was tolerant of his fellow students and would run away if someone bullied or hit him. One time a classmate pushed him down, and he sprained his ankle. His father said he was too timid, but it didn't bother him.
As he grew up and school became more time-consuming, his grandma would remind and urge him to study the Fa with her whenever he could manage to spare some time.
There was a period of time when he was obsessed with online video games. His parents were worried and asked him to quit repeatedly, without much success. His aunt then talked to him from the perspective of the Fa and cultivation about why he should give up online games. He realized from Master Li's lectures that these games stemmed from alien beings, who attempt to control humans, and that it was extremely dangerous for him to remain addicted to them. After that, he quit playing them. When he felt tempted and relapsed once or twice, he was able to stay levelheaded with the help of his parents.
He also enrolled in extracurricular classes. He was always diligent and focused on whatever he was learning and was able to master almost anything. He achieved the amateur level nine in the ancient game of Go, and his painting and English teachers praised him for his accomplishments in both subjects. He was also fluent in ancient Chinese poetry, had an excellent memory, and his ability to communicate frequently amazed people.
The once terminally-ill baby has grown up and matured because of Dafa's influence in his life.
A Husband Obtains Doctorate Under Miraculous Circumstances
Yu Hong's husband is 47 years old. He'd aspired to get a doctoral degree but never could, due to his demanding job and the difficult entrance exam.
Two years ago, he decided to give it a try. Although he kept reciting “Falun Dafa is good,” he was a little skeptical. He had witnessed the benefits enjoyed by his family due to their practice of Dafa, so he kind of believed that doing so would be good for him, especially prior to the exam.
Later on, he was happy to find out that his score was one point above the admission minimum. While he was happy, he knew that his score was probably not high enough for admittance into the top school for his specialty in the province.
In the end, he was admitted to the top school – much to his surprise. He understood that it was the power of Dafa and a blessing for placing his trust in Dafa.
For a doctorate in his specialty, people can graduate in two years, provided that the research and coursework are completed and the dissertation defense goes well. However, quite a lot of people are not able to even graduate in the normal three-year period. In addition to fact that he was the oldest in his class, he had to deal with the pressure of living away from home and the heavy course load.
When he actually did get his doctorate diploma within two years, he did not forget to thank Master Li for the blessing.
Winning a National Championship
Yu Hong was the team leader for a group of four other doctors from her workplace to participate in a national debate competition last year. She was eloquent and convincing and spent a lot of time and effort on the debate topics once they were assigned. After winning their way through four rounds of debates, Yu Hong and her team were among the twelve that made it to the final.
On the last day of the competition, she sincerely recited those powerful words – "Falun Dafa is good," and "Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good" – and pleaded for Master's help, while calmly and diligently preparing with her teammates. Their final performance was phenomenal and garnered high scores at each stage of the competition. Eventually, they won and shared the national co-championship with another team – an honor for her workplace that was previously unimaginable.
Yu Hong wants to tell her family's stories to everyone and wants everyone to know that “Falun Dafa is good; Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good.” She also hopes that all people predestined to come across Dafa will not be fooled by the CCP's lies and propaganda so that they too can get a chance to truly experience the beauty and blessings of Dafa.
Yu Hong and her husband now both want to start watching the Dafa lecture videos. May the couple soon embark on their path to return to their true selves and follow Master home!
