How are sickle cell anemia inherited?

Sickle cell anemia is inherited when both parents pass the Hemoglobin S gene(trait) to their offspring. If only one parent has the Hemoglobin S trait then that child(ren) will only have the sickle cell anemia trait (such as myself) but will not have the sickle cell anemia disease. Now, if both parents have the Hemoglobin S trait then that child will have Sickle cell anemia. Basically both parents have to have the Hemoglobin S trait (Sickle cell anemia TRAIT) for their child to get it. So, if I were too have a child with someone who has sickle cell anemia trait then our child will have sickle cell anemia disease. *The trait does not mean you have the disease it just mean you are a carrier for sickle cell anemia
