OK. There's this little thing called sacrifice. Are you aware of how many
marriages fail when a severely disabled child is born? Or the general lack
of support services for these children, once they are adults?
Massachusetts' waiting list for adult group homes was about 5 years long as
of a few years ago. Aging parents who know they will not be there forever
for their adult children, or were unable to continue caring for them?

This is a harsh reality, but potential parents are not stupid for looking
at this.
