Genetic Problems

Do you know anyone with cerebral palsy? It can be a devastating disease that can be avoided so many times. When I was growing up there was a couple just up the street from us who both had this. Because they knew they could most likely pass it on to their children, they made the choice to adopt. They adopted two really sweet kids from Colombia and you know, handicapped or not, they did a really great job with them.

I have always worried about some of the genetic disorders we could have passed on to our kids. So far, we've been pretty lucky. Genetic's just not something you think of when you are planning a wedding!
