@Luckyme1 it certainly is a difficult and personal decision that you get forced to make, and you are right chances are very high at our age ...it is very confronting and not even my self protective pessimism prepared me for being told we were the 1 in 50 or whatever it is. The point is for us, once you decide to proceed and they are born, there is no turning back. Who would know what their life will entail, happiness, joy or struggle, suffering? I just am thankful that we can test now ...given the way roulette works for us...I am sure there are just as many odds involved in the different aspects of DS manifestation...and affectedness
Anyway I know its a sensitive topic and im not wanting to offend anyone least of all mothers who have chosen to proceed or their beautiful bubbies, I understand all points thats for sure. I am desparate and childless so it is incredibly heartbreaking . I did not want to be put in this position that is for sure.
