I was born before testing, too. i was 6 and my brother was 8 when we were diagnosed. my brother is ok, but i’ve been struggling. i’m not retarded, but i have struggled in school. i’m now 49 (50 in October) and i’m taking a crack at college for the third time. i’m not doing well in school, but i have to do something. ni’m truly sorry to hear about your children and your miscarriage. i have 3 children. my daughters are perceptually impaired and my son is neurologically impaired. so far, my grandchildren seem normal.
