I Would have Chosen You

"Even if I had known the outcome, I would have chosen knowing you." - The Grief Toolbox

Would I? The sentiment is lovely and highlights the value of love over loss. From a selfish point of view of course I would have chosen knowing my daughter. But, would I still choose to give birth to a child who would suffer with OCD and depression? If I knew that my genetics would inflict my dad's and sister's severity of depression upon my child - no... I don't think I would do that.If I could magically remove my daughter's suffering, then the answer would be yes.
