  • One of our customers just had her 5th son and is planning to keep trying until she gets her daughter!
    I just don't get it!

  • I always felt blessed wth what I received. I feel that if you want something specific try to adopts.

  • A brother of a friend had 11 boys, then a girl. I'm sure she is one tough cookie. They had a couple more kids after her, and they were boys, too.

    Can you imagine feeding that many people, never mind that many boys?! Yikes.

  • Sad story
    I know a family that pushed for a boy. Something like 7 girls. The boy was so disabled he didnt make it to 20...

  • I think "daddy" oughta have his spermies checked before trying for a girl on number 13...course since they didn't find out the gender until birth (by choice).....

  • Wow! I know a woman who had thirteen children in all, and ten were girls. She didn't get a boy till number seven, but she wanted as many kids as God would give her, so she kept having babies till she was widowed in her forties. Insane!

  • I'm with Dard on this one. Why keep having more children if you only have a 50/50 shot on getting the gender you want. Why not just adopt? These days, unless you're independently wealthy, you couldn't possibly afford that many kids!
