This is her now btw.. her name is Brooke, shes four :) and amazing..

this is her proud of herself for mastering the stairs they just installed for her.. they are shorter then normal so she can walk up and down them.

Its hard to say no when you look at the picture of the cute baby. But yes, i would. Life is really hard and i know i don't have the means or the money to get a child like that the proper medical care he/she needed and to find someone to care for such a child if i were to become ill or die. No, i could never give a child up for adoption either and i wouldn't want to wonder if my baby ever got abused because of his/her condition.

Bash if you must, but you asked my opinion.

I've lost 5 pregnancies so I'm leaning toward no. I figure if there's a reason I lost those there would be a reason I didn't lose this one.

I said yes, just because life would be too hard for that child. A friend of mine lost his arm in elementary school and still has difficulties being an independant because of it.
