If you were to have more children, do think you'd have one with special needs?

I personally am long past that, but the boys' biomother has a 50/50 chance of having another child with her deletion.

In my case, yes. I got my tubes tied because of the odds.

The odds are pretty great I'd say so we've decided against anymore biological children.

It's not genetic so probably very slim.

I definitely would, because if we choose to continue fostering post-lion, I would only foster medically complex children. Biologically, I have my tubes tied, and never gave birth to a child with special needs.
