    Please don't use the word retarded. I am not trying to be to picky but it is offensive to many people. young people use the word alot saying "that's so retarded". I jump on them too. I am an educator. My sister's oldest child is mentally impaired. Retarded is absolutely outdated and VERY OFFENSIVE to any one who has someone in their family. You may be pregnant and God help you that your child is not impaired in any way and is perfect. Please watch your posts. I am also a dedicated Special Education teacher with 27 years experience and I would be upset with you if you came demanding help for those retarded people. I do realize that you didn't mean to upset someone but be careful- You never know what kind of a child God has in store for you.
