    I hope that you're not trying to make fun of this disease, because it's far from funny.

    I hope that my kid's dont have such misfortunes. I don't know if i could handle that as a parent.

    It's lame to make fun of people's disabilities... it's like being racist in my opinion... pointless and ignorant...

    That's a good description though. I notice kids with Downe's Syndrome all have that similar look in the face. I hope you're not making fun of them.

    No shit? What would you do? Give them up for adoption? Send them away to a "special" home to get looked after, so you wouldn't have to look at their ugly face every day and struggle to understand their retarded speech?
    A real parent loves their child no matter what. While i know nobody, including myself, would wish for a child with birth defects, what you're given is a creation made by you and it's your ultimate responsibility. No matter what your child is like, you should love it exactly the same.

    yea ofcourse that would be the ideal situation... to love the child no matter what, but i dont know if i could handle having to look at my kid day in and day out. It would break my heart every single time i looked at it.
