I have no family history of cystic or Downs or any other genetic abnormality. I have to admit, there's a part of me that feels I wouldn't want to know if there was a problem like that. Maybe I'm naive, but it wouldn't change anything about how I love and care for this child. But at the same time, I'm sure there are things I just don't know about what it means to raise a child with these challenges.
Have any of you ever refused to have it done? What was your reasoning? Or, if you have a strong opinion as to why you chose to do it, please share that too. I'm just doing some initial information gathering and processing. Thanks!
