Everyone on my dad's side of the family has had depression including me. I'm nowhere near having kids but I want to know if I should even try to have them biologically because I don't want to pass it on to a child. My dad, aunt, sister, grandma (bipolar) and grandpa all were/are clinically depressed. My mom's side has no history of family illness but its literally the only trait thats really been passed down from my father's side.
