  • i sure would...it took so long for me and my dh to actually have a child.they told me that i couldnt have any children. i would love that child with or without an flaws. and its not like the child asked to have that.

  • Yes, and I have a son who was just diagnosed with Aspergers, and a daughter with unspecified developmental delays. They are more than worth it to me, even when things get rough. I think in a way, that special needs kids are just more loved, and every little milestone my dd makes certainly is not taken for granted. If anything were to happen to her I would be devastated...

  • Yes - my oldest has autism and he's wonderful! There are no guarantees that children are going to by typical in every way. They are unique and each one is special.

  • I know this makes me sound like a horrible person but I wouldn't. I don't have the money to take care of it and my SO and his family are VERY superficial.... I don't ever want to have to abort a baby but I don't want my child to come in the world with disatvantages
