    This is wrong in so many ways. What is wrong with folks that they have to have designer everything, and now want to add children to the list. I have three children. In my eyes they are perfect. They are a wonderful combination both my husband and myself. What hare brained scheme will scientists come up with next? Boggles my mind!
