Please reconsider!!! I am the proud parent of two daughters with SCA. My ex-husband and I are both carriers. All I can tell you is that I would hate for you to miss the blessing of being parents for fear of having a child with Sickle Cell. The joys and rewards strongly outweigh the negatives. Don't kid yourself, it will be difficult, but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!!! God bless.
