How many kids do you have? Do you want more?

Right now, I only have a stepson who lives with us full time. Our infant son died last year shortly after birth and we have been trying ever since to get pregnant and it isn't happening. Been over a year now, so we decided to adopt. I truly only ever wanted one child to spoil and just have one.. 2 counting my SS of course. But now that we are adopting through foster care, I can see myself wanting to adopt at least two or three. Am I not thinking clearly or did I really have a change of heart? We're taking the classes now and we have a child that we are planning to adopt so after all the pre placement visits, he should move in with us in about 4 weeks. But I see myself wanting more kids. How big is your family? and did you plan it to be that big when you started out?

  • We have 3 boys. Now that my youngest will be turning 6 next month I am itching to have another. I remember always wanting to have 4 boys. But....I doubt I will actually go through with having one. I just can't see starting all over again. My hubby and I are just now enjoying some freedom so it would really be a huge change for us to have a newborn.
