Polio is a virus. Not a genetic disorder. My Father had polio, which left him with one leg shorter, my sis and I are fine. He had no trouble raising us and playing with us and doing all the things that Dad's do, and we never even noticed or thought anything strange of it. In fact, unless someone would ask me, i would forget all about it! So, really do not worry about it! Your children will be fine! You are very thoughtful to worry though!

No, don't worry. If you had chickenpox when you were a child, your children will not be born with spots would they? Once you are over the polio virus that causes the body weaknesses, you have no way of passing it on to others.
I have been married for 35 years to a man that had polio when he was two. it left him with a brace on one leg and he has used crutches his whole life. We have three healthy smart sons (all grown up now). All are above average in intelligence and one of our sons ended up being 6 foot 5 inches.
