I think I would speak with a physician prior to making a final decision – and also your future wife. While your motives are honorable, an expert in the area of genetics would be able to provide you with valuable information.
For example, my maternal family has a history of a genetic disorder that causes deafness and blindness. After speaking with a physician I learned exactly what the chances were of my children suffering from the disorder, and what my children’s children chances are.
I’d also like to say that no one in my family or my child’s father’s family has ADHD or ADD; however, my son does. My other son also doesn’t have ADHD or ADD.
