@dewingedpixie:  I’m so sorry you’re going through all of that. Love your daughter 200 times more and cherish everything about her. 

I applaud your decision. I think you are being strong, selfless, and that you are doing the right thing.

My mom has RA and I have a cousin who was diagnosed with juvenile RA at 3 years old (mom’s niece). I am kind of thinking about having a genetic screen done because we are on the fence about kids too. I’d have to go off a lot of medication and it would also put me at higher risk. We don’t want to think about TTC until we are over 30. I think if that decision could be made for me I would be a little relieved, not to say I would not be depressed. 

I think you should take comfort in your family and be grateful for your daughter (not saying you aren’t at all). There is just not much else you can do, outside of adoption.
