19 kids and counting?

Would you be willing to have that many kids if you had the income and patience?

  • forget patience, or income. There comes a point when one must question the quality of life that all involved in the situation are experiencing. Then there is the issue of physical risk from carrying that many pregnancies, and the hazards which lie in wait for later years because of all of the damage done to ones body by pregnancy/birth.

  • No...and not even half that...I just don't have the patience that she has...she's a good mom though. However, I would have liked to have been a kid in their family...a very unselfish family with a lot of love.

  • Oh hell no! Two kids would be enough, three at the most, even if I was filthy stinking rich, I would not have that many.

  • She does seem to handle it well, but those kids could never participate in sports or activities. How could she drive 15 kids to baseball, dance class and hockey? I could never do it.

  • Absolutely not. I don't think you could ever give enough attention to any of the kids. We have 5 now, if I were able I'd have two more (I love kids!), but 7 would be my limit.
