What is the proper etiquette for talking to someone with a disability?

Having a Baby?

Family and friends should never show shock or 'nay-say' to the couple, where one has diabetes, when they have decided to have children. It is obvious this is their want, and that they have already consulted their doctor on the dangers. Weighing all possibilities, this is THEIR choice to have a family, and should be supported by all. (This happened to some young friends of mine, they had two boys who are just fine, as is the diabetic Mother.)
