Do you come from a large family or a small family?

Mine is a mix - I was an only child for 8 years, then my parents became foster parents and from the ages of 9 to 16 we had 57 foster kids in and out of the house. When I was 11 they got my adopted brother when he was 3 months old (but it took more than 5 years for them to adopt him.)

  • I came from a HUGE family. I was the oldest of 4 kids, 13 grandkids and 27 great-grandkids. The family is so big we have to rent out a fire department and the community center beside of it just to hold all of us. Add on to the fact that I have 5 kids myself and it makes for interesting holidays!

  • 6 of us (including my Mom and Dad). My extended family (mostly my Mom's side) is huge.

  • Well, I only have 1 brother, so my immediate family is kinda small. My extended family is a decent size. My husban'ds extended family is HUGE.

  • my DH and I are both only children..... which is odd. My Moms Mom had 5 kids, my Dads Mom had 4........ and DH's Mom was one of 1 kids too...... our parents were from the mindset of "I hated having so many siblings" so they chose to just have 1 and spoil us like crazy.
