What do you think about families who have more children when they can't afford the ones they have? I was talking to this lady who had three children she said she was struggling to support and she and her dh was trying for another one because God would provide. I thought that was kind of out there. I feel that God gives us common sense to make decisions like this for ourselves. But that is just me.
We have one child and would love one more. But I want to be able to live comfortably and provide for my kids. If I can help it I don't want to have to take aid from the government. I know that sometimes people fall on hard times and by all means they should do what they have to do to bring themselves out of the hole. But I don't think having another child will help that situation.
Just FYI.... I did not stick my nose in her business....she volunteered this info.....I seem to be one of those people who alway get TMI stories from random people.

I have two children and after my seventeen year old got cancer when he was two I had to think about the reality after losing everything to keep him alive. No big deal stuff can be regained but after this experience I was happy with the two of them and that was my limit even though at one point I wanted another the reality was I reached my limit with two and was grateful he went into remission and survived just like I knew he would. Children are awesome but deserve to live and learn everything they can without being the one who goes without.

There's a HUGE difference in people who have children then lose the ability to support them through a job layoff or serious illness and people who are already on the systemS and continue to have children they know they can't support. It's wrong to expect others to support your children because you think God will provide for you/them...it's not GOD doing the providing it's US the taxpayers who fund all those &^%)(*@ entitlement programs. If you can't afford children QUIT HAVING THEM. We should have the right to refuse to support you.
