  105. At my parents house, we were 4 (I have three sisters). Now that I'm married, I have 2 kids (they are almost the same ages of Mackynzie and Michael). I don't want to have kids for a while (health and financial problems), but maybe I will have more kids in the future. I would like to have 5 (maybe 7?) kids, but I'm not sure if I will ever get there... I love kids, but they are a lot of hard work!

    ReplyDelete
  106. 4 daughters and 3 sons, plus 2 in heaven. I'm 41, my youngest is 8 months old, so we'll see if there are more...They'd certainly be welcome! We love our children, and each one has taught us so much.

  109. I was the 5th of 8, unfortunate my oldest brother passed away from cancer, my husband is the 4th of 12, we are 26 and have 2 kids so far! My kids already have almost 40 first cousins! My parents were also from big families 7 and 9 and all of them married and have between 5 and 15 kids, and their children have lots of kids, so I have 100,s of first and second cousins, my great aunt had 18 , and hundreds of grandchildren and great! So big families aren't such a suprise to me but its still amazing how much work just one child is and even more amazing is how a mother can go through pregnancy and birth etc again and again!

When the attic was converted into a bedroom for my brother my dad took the little one next to mine as a studio. Now that I moved out he's converted mine into the studio (it's bigger) and turned the little one into a guest room.

Well children are even more of a blessing and if u wouldn't turn down those little things that we get like new toys, movie ect these things that don't have a right to be here I can't believe when people say " two is plenty" or "19 children that's ridiculous what about your life it's is your life?" Well I think that's selfish and to anyone who thinks like that I pray for you. We I am currently in my tween years and have only 4 other sibs we are praying for more and as for mr and mrs duggar I greatly appropriate your testimony to the world may God bless you as your imprint touches the world and everyone living on it for generations God bless the duggars!

  154. My family started grew to three then adoption increase to 13 kids.
    I have an adopted sister my age and twin brothers 7 years younger. The rest are older brothers. Was very hard to date...lol There was a lot of leave my baby sister alone...lol
    Everyone came home for my 16th birthday that was fantastic and so kind. My first dozen red roses from my second eldest brother.
    As an adult I raised seven children including two spares we welcomed into our household that had their own families but needed a loving home.
    I am looking forward to more grandchildren as they find their ways in life.

  155. I am the oldest of seven. 4 girls, 3 boys. My husband and I have three, so far. My first two, (ages 5 and 2) and my two youngest sisters are the same age. Expecting at the same time as my mom was so much fun! We definitely are thankful for each member of the family and look forward to new additions!
