That Kaiden will find someone and have a family some day.
DS men are known to not father children (only 2 cases have been documented) but I wonder how much this has to do with:
#1 poor diet, leading to low sperm count (after all, one of the prevailing beliefs is that their "less efficient" digestive system/metabolic disorder is part of why they have developmental delays) I say "less efficient" in quotes bc my gut feeling is that their digestive system is just different, not necessarily less efficient.
#2 older generations having little or no expectations, and never working very hard with their child to learn more - I mean, DS individuals are going to college and getting jobs and getting married just like everyone else nowadays . . . but the older generations were told to expect to have to care for them their whole life or institutionalize them . . . so it's not like many of them got the chance to marry or try to have kids, KWIM?
If I had to pick just one, it would be that he never needs heart surgery. Any time he has to be put under it is like russian roulette with his heart. Having an actual heart surgery would be the scariest I think. Right now his heart is "moderate".
