Yeah I worked at a school for kids with developmental disorders in college (mostly autism and Down's) so I've had some experience in the area. I'm not going to pretend that I know what life was like for their parents based on my handful of hours there, but I've experienced it. And I have no doubt it's hard. That said, the reason I differentiated between autism and Down's specifically in my original post is because those disorders are relatively common. Doctors/people know what it is and what they're dealing with. In my original post I was thinking more of disorders that are hugely rare and for which there are no widely accepted treatments purely because of their rarity. And if I could possibly force that life on a kid if I could help it. The reason I ask is because it happened to a former teammate of mine. During her first pregnancy, her amnio showed that her son would be born with a chromosomal abnormality. She chose to have him. After the birth, doctors told her he wouldn't make it past a few months. Five years later, he's still around. Which she wears like a badge of honor and I really respect and admire her for it. But good Lord... her life must be so hard. I don't know if I myself could do it.
