Wow. Talk about a tough one!

I think that what's most important is how you and your family feel about the possibility of having another child, and one who may be more "special needs" than the one you have now. If you have no problem with that, then I say just go for it. After all, there is no guarantee in life for any of us and at least you'd be prepared for it. I suppose your kid could come back at you one day with the old "why did you have me" stuff, but honestly I think all kids have their issues, you'll just have one ready for him/her when he feels like throwing it at you (I'm thinking teenage years here!), lol.

So I'm voting to have your own baby.

[Wow. It feels so dumb saying that, like I have any input into such a personal decision!]
