I've discussed this before with different people. If your baby was going to have Down's Syndrome or have a fairly severe mental handicap and you had the option to abort it, would you?
Personally, I wouldn't. I'd love whatever baby God gave me regardless, but I was curious how other moms feel.

BTDT.... I have a developmentally delayed child. Around 30 weeks pg a doctor came to me and said "you do know it isn't too late don't you?"
I was like WTF are you talking about?? I didn't understand what her diagnosis *could* mean but I knew that I could NOT abort her!! She is the most precious, sweetest little girl I have ever known.

God doesn't give you babies, sex does. It doesn't say in the Bible that God gives people defective babies. This is a myth that people with defective babies HATE!
While you are loving your defective baby your husband may leave you and you may loose everything you have. That happens to people with defective children. Sometimes the parents have to get divorced for the baby to be able to get medical care. You don't know how you would feel about a defective baby. No one can know. You may not be able to love the baby. You may suffer profound PPD. You may not be able to attach to your baby.
