My cousin has this. He is now 31 and lives with his dad. He has some of the mental retardationn, but graduated high school and holds a normal job at a supermarket!

I voted for the embryo selection. Listen, in a perfect world, we would all handle the challenges presented to us, but here you have a challenge laid out before you. Do you wish to prevent this from happening to your next child? Is sounds like yes. While the embryo selection can be considered "not ethical" you can chose to put back any embryos that are not subject to this disoprder regardless of gender. I think this is reasonable to try. However, IVF is expensive and there ar eno guarentees that it will work.

This really is your decision, but I am just letting you know what I would do!
