Indeed there are many conditions a child can be born with. I didn’t make up any fancy terms, though. I leave that to the professionals ;-) I don’t see why made up “fancy” terms are a problem though — every word we speak and write was once a “made up” term, maybe even considered “fancy.” Thank God for the evolution of language. I, for one, am glad to live in an age where I don’t have to listen to men pound their chest saying, “Me Tarzan, you Jane” anymore. Also, I don’t think the word disabled means what you think it means. Might wanna look that one up.
