Siblings Support Of Sex Addicts

Stay strong and take care of yourself! Hope this helps. ...Read more

For some, Microdeletion 22q11 can be subtle & diagnosed in adulthood so I recommend Genetic counseling due to a sib w/VCFS. ...Read more

Each child is 50% mom and 50% dad. If one parent has men and the other does not, child has 25% chance of having men. However, grandparents genes also important.
