Sorry I haven't been around much, so busy!  I came upon this article, it's a very interesting one!  I'm not saying I agree or disagree with it, but the one part I can relate to is the pain and heartache.

That is a very interesting article! I can relate to the pain also, but I worry about the emotional effect that PGD can have on families. On the other hand, if the mom feels like she is really missing out on something, maybe getting that will help her be a better mom?

I LOVE this article!!!  I'd totally do this if I was upper class and could dish out the dough.  Oh to heal my heart, I'd give just about anything :smileyhappy:
