  • If I were broke? I'm not sure finances have anything to do with the decision I would make. It would depend on the terminal illness. I have seen children who were terminal - and their parents. So I could not say either way. It would depend on the diagnosis and what type of quality of life my child was going to have. So my answer would be that it depends.

  • yes, cause every child is a gift from God. He makes them like that for a reason beyond on our understanding...this video is a great example...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=th6Njr-qkq0

  • I would never even question weither I would keep a sick child. The way I see it, God never gives us more then what we can hanlde. And just sometimes God gives us these babies who are sick to show that he has a larger plan then we know.

  • I would keep the child. I know parents around the world face these kinds of issues daily and it has to be tough. I read a book called The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards about a man whose wife gives birth to a child with down syndrome and gives her away because he is afraid of the future she will have, it is the saddest thing and it ultimately tears him apart. Id never abort a pregnancy out of fear, the lord has a plan for all of us.
