@cardsfan27 - You can predict what traits a child will have assuming both of the parts are homozygous recessive. This would mean that no matter what combination gets sent to the next generation, both alleles will be recessive.
If one of the parents has a known dominant trait, however, there are various probabilities for a child having different traits.
When we had our first child, we went to a genetic consultant to make sure he wouldn't have any problems. She was a great help. There is something called a Punnett square that will help you to predict the various possibilities. In the end, our son came out just fine, and we even had an idea of what he would look like in some regards.
